    Okay can someone clarify something for me.
    If Dems get majority in the senate and Gop president, would that be the equivalent of the current Canadian parliament? For example, Harper doesn't have much power being the head of a minority. So would McCain would also be the head of a minority and have 'limited power?' You know what I mean?

    Yeah, but if Obama can pull Virginia and Indiana, that is always a good sign.

    Sort of, but the president has certain powers seperate from Congress as they do from the prez.

    Gore v Bush round two?

    How the hell can people be so fucking stupid? McCain supported and backed Bush's BS for eight years! Do they truly believe that man is going to be different?
