Kinda sucks that the House has one party and the Senate has another, though; how much are we gonna get done with that setup?
It's happened before. We're going to see the same thing, probably, that we did in '96, when we had a Democratic president and a Republican Congress. They'll just be forced to work together. And look what came of that partnership.
