Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Clinton never really had an ideological majority, because conservatism was rising and many of the Dems were still Dixiecrats.  You're right.  I think Obama is a little more likely to get an ideological majority -- or, like I said, a solid minority mixed with some scared Republicans who'll cave on the big stuff.

If they can get over 60 seats, they'll hold Congress at least until 2012, I'd guess.

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.
