    Also this time around, health care reform is off the table.  It's done.  The Tea Party is broken and will have a difficult time remaining relevant so there won't be any ground swell birther nuttiness this time.  I would suspect you are going to see more assassination plots uncovered and really fringe activity but the Tea Party ended up being a political liability.  Obama won't have to worry about the secession segment either.  Everybody knows he is going to finish in four years so no more reload talk.

    Obama knows the Republican leadership and how they operate so now we find out if he understands the limits of their cooperation and how he should proceed to accomplish his objectives.  It should be fascinating to see it unfold and tell us a lot about the reality and benefit of his budget and debt policies.
