Two billion dollars and 18 months of campaigning and the country ends up with essentially the same situation in Washington. Poor (or no) leadership on both sides. A bitterly divided government that won't be able to pursue any meaningful agenda for the future. Normally I hope for gridlock in D.C. because I think the less they accomplish, the better off we are. There are serious problems facing the country and I see few ideas offered to fix things and even less chance of both sides coming together even make the attempt.
Apologies for the rant - more painted models coming up!
