Sometimes political nonsense is deadly. This is one of those times. And, with the coming shift from a Democratic-controlled to Republican-controlled Senate and the Republican Leaderships vow to shut down the government in order to force a default by the US, we are in for a tough two years. I think it will lengthen Hillary Clinton’s coattails in 2016 and may even lead to Democratic control of both the Executive and Legislative Branches. Barring an unforeseen calamity, Republicans will continue to control the Judicial Branch through the first 4 years of Ms. Clinton’s presidency but, if she is re-elected, that will shift as she replaces Ginsburg, Stevens and Scalia. If the Lord graces me with 10 more years, they should be interesting times, indeed.
