Status quo. No mandate. Gridlock. Right.
Wrong. The Republicans are left with Ryan, an antedeluvian lightweight. Hilary is a shoo in. Even Cuomo. The Fat Guy is too damn fat.
Barack Obama never has to go through this again. On paper, he's in a box. In fact, he's free to be the Big Guy. The Republicans will not help; they are still in the grip of the loonies.
WATCH THIS MAN.
(btw, Let's hear it for Nate Silver. this cycle's ony real journalist).
