The problem is not that President Bush and the republicans have a majority. Gone are the moderate republicans, the Chuck Hagels and John McCains. The new senators that have been elected are on the far end of the conservative spectrum. While the Republicans do not have the 60 needed to break a filibuster, the new Senators are much more conservative than mainstream America. Problem 2. With Renqhuist and several other justices looking like they will retire, Bush will most likely nominate ultra-conservative justices who place the bible before the constitution. The deciding issue in this election was not Iraq or the economy, the two largest problems this country is facing. It was based on gay marriage. The nation has once again been polarized. It's not going to be a fun 4 years. The evangelist conservative Christians are as much of a minority as the far-left Hillary Clinton liberals, however their views are now going to be forced on main stream America. What America needs now is a congress who will reach across the aisle and work together for a better America, not one that will continue to polarize the nation with a radical agenda.
