...and toss in 5 progressive Supreme Court Justices.

How would such a make-up of our government affect the United States after, say, two presidential terms like this?

I think America would more resemble this town...

Obama/Reid/Pelosi had just that in 2008. You saw the results: "You have to pass it to see what is in it Obamacare".

I'm happy as long as Congress is either divided or completely opposed to the President. It forces the parties to work together to get anything done. This is what we had under both Reagan and Clinton, and it's also what we now have after 2010.

Anytime a party dominates the government, it's ultimately bad. The Extremes start to dominate for their narrow agenda at the expense of the general public. See GWB or Carter.

Just look at 2009 and 2010 to see how much spending we did. You want that all the time ?

"Democratic Control of White House, House and Senate: What would the results be?"

The first step towards regaining sanity?

That would be my guest.
