    If the Republicans gain control of both houses, they will encounter a dangerous environment. When they got control during the Clinton administration, Clinton modified his behavior and signed bills like Welfare Reform. Clinton's popularity results from his shift to the winds. Obama has no intentions of shifting. Instead he will go further left and further damage the country. He will blame Republicans for all the damage. Unfortunately, Republicans won't respond. So the question arises - how does this translate for 2016?
