Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
In the US what tends to happen when the Presidency and the Congressional majority are controlled by different parties is legislative gridlock - especially when Republican's control Congress. Obama wasn't allowed do anything after the Affordable Care act as he lost Congress after his first two years. Democrats tend to be more amenable to compromise or selling out depending on your point of view.
