How a Loss of the Senate Could Help Obama

Dana Millbank: "Crazy talk, you say? Maybe so. The prevailing view is that a Republican Senate would only compound Obama's woes by bottling up confirmations, doubling the number of investigations and chipping away at Obamacare and other legislative achievements."

"Yet there's a chance that having an all-Republican Congress would help Obama -- and even some White House officials have wondered privately whether a unified Republican Congress would be better than the current environment. Republicans, without Harry Reid to blame, would own Congress -- a body that inspires a high level of confidence in just 7 percent of Americans, according to a Gallup survey last month finding Congress at a new low and at the bottom of all institutions tested."
