Democrats To Lead Congress

By Scott McLean

Democrats won control of the House of Representatives on Tuesday. At the time of this writing, they are also close to taking control of the Senate, as the Democratic candidate in Virginia has what looks like a comfortable lead in the vote count. That senate seat would give Democrats a majority in the Senate.

President Bush in his press conference Wednesday expressed a willingness to work together with Democrats to find "common ground" on some issues.

Bush, a Republican, said he would meet later this week with Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi, the House Minority Leader who is expected to be the next House Speaker.

The president must find ways to work with Democrats to avoid gridlock if he intends to keep his priorities moving forward.

Next time, I will have comments by President Bush and the Democratic leaders, along with analysis of the congressional elections.
