I don't think too many people on this forum have any idea on the ideology of politicians. No matter what their party affiliationm is, the politics will not change. Everyone thinks things will be better when the Republicans take over the house. During the Bush-Cheney era I remember people calling for their impeachment. Now people want the Republicans back in office. Do you all see the trend that has and will continue forever? Remember the words of Jesse Ventura. He said politics are very similar to wrestling. In public view the Dems and the Reps are sworn enemies. However. behind closed doors they are good friends and work together on most issues.
