It all depends on your point of view, but historically Americans prefer gridlock in government - having one party controlling the house, senate and Presidency is very unusual, and obviously if you were on the other side of the fence the last two years were a pretty scary time.

Now that we are back to our usual stifled government I think many people will feel more comfortable.

In the late 90s when we had a surplus we had a Democratic President but a Republican congress. Ol' Bill was quite the centrist and there was a lot of compromise and things worked well.

That is where I tend to come down, as a centrist. It is the polemic types at both ends of the scale complaining and condemning all the time that give me chest pains.
