I'm afraid we'll never see a remotely functional Washignton DC ever again. Now it's "no loaf is better than half a loaf".
There will not be 4 more years of gridlock. That would be political suicide for the GOP given where the public views the current congress. You cannot move into an open election with a record of years of no accomplishments. Obstructionism has played out now and all the marbles have been bet on Romney...LOL It just isn't going to happen.
