I hear cries of bravado from the Right: "We'll take back the Senate in two years!"
Taking back the Senate is impossible because only one third of Senate seats come be up for re-election every two years. Furthermore, in such a situation, Obama will do as he's done during his first term: govern by executive order and regulation.
