Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I heard a comment quoting McConnell this morning on NPR. He seemed to concede that the Republicans are likely to lose both the White House and the Senate but stated that Trump's three Supreme Court nominees would make a lasting impression on the country. I suspect that the new conservative majority, (even without Roberts), will be cautious in pressing their advantage due to concern about court expansion. Time will tell.

If the Dems do win the Senate I don't expect Majority Leader Chuck "Attack Chihuahua" Schumer to make any drastic changes.  He and the rest of the DLC will wring their hands and moan and groan they don't have all 5,619 Senate seats and thus can do nothing.

I predict a whole lot of reaching across the aisle.

It's possible some powder will be kept dry too.
