Opening Arguments

Never happen

I'm not quite sure what to make of this:

Republican Indiana Sen. Dan Coats says a GOP takeover of the U.S. Senate in next month's election could lead to greater cooperation with President Barack Obama.

[. . .]

Coats told The Journal Gazette (http://bit.ly/1EOXdhx )) that he believed Republicans "could present unified solutions, lay them at the doorstep of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., and maybe the president, like Bill Clinton, will see, if we have a sweep election, that it's time to reach some agreements. I don't know, it's up to him."

Are they going to present him solutions he would find pleasing? That's not exactly encouraging. In fact, the main reason to seek a GOP Senate majority is to put the brakes on Obama's mad agenda. Do they think he will come to the middle (let alone across the political divide) to accept proposals Republicans find pleasing? Dream on.
