What if Republicans Take Control of the Senate?

Wall Street Journal: "It is very difficult to imagine that House Republicans' takeaway from such an election would be to search again for moderation. But it wouldn't matter. The House won't be capable of legislating on its own. The real focus will be on the Senate."

"It also is very difficult to imagine Senate Republicans winning the 60 votes necessary to cut off a filibuster. So, the issue facing House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell would be simple. How do they legislate given the fact that every bill coming from the House would be subject to a Democratic filibuster in the Senate?"
