I think the salient point is that the blue wave didn't materialize, and that the Democrats pulled defeat from the jaws of a real victory with that disgusting sham of a confirmation process with Justice Kavanaugh.

This was a draw for both parties, when it could have been a win for either.

Yeah, that is true as well. If the left couldn't muster a huge win now, with Trump causing SO MUCH angst on their side.. that's not a good look. BUT.. if they can milk their half win for 2 years and then get a compelling candidate for Pres in 2020, they're looking alright.

So if you believe the latest Q posts, Trump achieved his main goal: to shore up the Senate. Apparently that is where the important work toward current goals is to be done. That is backed up by Trump's campaign stops in the final days. All but one (rally for the governorship in GA) in November included Senate candidate rallies.

And yes, the GOP led House was dismal. The Senate was at least quietly appointing judges and (more recently, loudly) Justices. Together they passed tax reform, but, thanks to John McCain, failed to deal with Obamacare. So, yeah, not that much of a loss, nor a departure from many Presidents prior.

Whether the dem House can accomplish anything (even slow Trump down on anything not requiring a spending bill) will remain to be seen. If all they want is to witch hunt and try to impeach - well, two years of investigation has found pretty much nothing at all, so? With the RINOs, they had already gridlocked much of the President's agenda (the wall comes to mind), so, yeah, more of the same I suppose.

That is some serious perspective right there. If Trump had held the House, it would have been pretty much unprecedented. The only time recently that it went the other way was after 9/11 as I recall.

Is she more or less native american than Elizabeth Warren (who also won)?
Well, she at least looks the part.
Also, to my previous point:

And how many of those ~45 seats might we have retained if they hadn't been held by never-Trumpers or pussies who bought into "Blue Wave" bullshit, and who didn't have the testicular fortitude to fight it out? Not that they were doing their jobs in the first place, with that RHINO cuckold Paul Ryan running things.

Fun fact, Trump went 9 for 11 on candidates he went out and backed, while Saint Barrak went 0 for 4.
