The House can't do much of anything without the Senate. Yes, they can obstruct and investigate. But if I were Nancy (or whoever they elect as Speaker) I would focus on getting something done, creating a record to run on in 2020, as they'll be raising funds and campaigning again in just a few short months.

And the Senate, stronger than before and not needing any House input, will surely get to confirm another Supreme Court justice and fast track the remaining Trump appointees. Meanwhile the Executive can declassify the FBI, CIA & NSA documents that expose the truth about the FISA scandal and Russia collusion witch hunt.

On balance, the Dems did not gain much of anything except the opportunity to show how bereft of ideas they really are.

This.

Also, they’ll be able to continue to demonstrate what a bunch of nuts are running that Party - unless Pelosi (or whomever becomes Speaker, because there are no guarantees) really reins them in, it’ll be like the looney bin in the House. I’m almost hoping for that, so that they get CRUSHED in 2020 - I was very disappointed to not be able to replenish my supply of Liberal Tears...but I have enough to last until about 2 years from now.
