Interesting thought. If some Republicans are happy that the Democrats kept the majority in the Senate because it will make Congress harder for Obama to scapegoat, could four Democrats (or three plus Lieberman) actually agree to switch sides and join the GOP just so Obama can have his whipping boy for 2012?

Granted, extremely far-fetched but I’ve learned to never assume these treacherous Dems will stop short in their quest for ultimate power. Could we see, say, a Manchin-Webb-Nelson-Lieberman flip to hand the Senate over to the GOP for two years just to use them as an issue for Dems to run against in 2012?

I think with Webb it is purely self preservation. I don’t see a lot of Dims putting their neck out for what is shaping up as a loser prez.

That is why there was an every man for himself attitude before the election and an open revolt is brewing in the house over Pelosi’s return.
