When Democrats lost the house, they still controlled the senate and the presidency. In contrast, the Republicans were shut out of all 3 and now are only hanging onto 1. I find it hard to believe this state of affairs is satisfactory to the people who run the party.
I don't know if it is satisfactory to the party since i'm not an insider, but i don't think becoming a democrat is the answer.
I actually look forward to see what the Republican party comes up with. I think it is better to have divided governmnent where both sides have to compromise and are kept honest by the other side.
I don't see either side keeping the other "honest".
