Overwhelming majorities? A little hyperbolic, wouldn't you say? That there exists significant majorities of one party in both houses, plus possession of the White House, does not mean they are there as a result of overwhelming votes in their favor from each district/state.

be reminded that Democrats won mostly because Wall Street melted and the economy tanked. And it was time to change regimes after eight years.
