For those of you concerned about an Obama presidency, your worries are misplaced. During the next two years Obama will be begging Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi to keep their yaps shut behind closed doors. Obama will want to be reelected in 2012 and cannot afford to go crazy. Reid and Pelosi can afford to go crazy, because they have only their local constituents to answer to. In fact, Pelosi's constituents will demand the craziness. Look at the city she represents.
Which gives Obama an opportunity. Within six months, Pelosi and Reid will be pushing the "Fairness" Doctrine. There will be legislation to ban scary-looking weapons. More than a few unbalanced people in Congress will demand that Bush be "tried for war crimes." Why would Obama waste political capital on this nonsense and risk firing up disheartened Republicans? Unlike Pelosi, Obama isn't stupid. 1994 will be on the back of his mind. Pelosi and Reid are different. They are cocksure right now and will overreach. Obama will slap them down, gaining political capital from the right and solidifying his "moderate" image.
If I am wrong about this and Obama doesn't remember 1994, then 2010 will mark the return of Republican control of Congress.
