The Other Election

A presidential race tends to garner all the focus, but in 2012, the races ofr Congress might prove just as decisive. If Obama wins, and does not help Democrats re-take the House, we could have four more years of stalemate. If the Republicans recapture the White House, but do not capture the Senate, look for Sen. Harry reid to become Mr. Obstruction.
