Good morning from Washington, where election results last night mean that Democrats will reclaim the House even as Republicans take a bigger majority in the Senate, posing new challenges and opportunities for President Trump. House Democrats will be able to pass some pet legislation and torment the Trump administration with oversight and investigations, for example. But Senate Republicans will have the numbers to stop unwanted bills and ease confirmation of the president’s nominees to courts and agencies. Hold tight, we see a bumpy road ahead.

The Democrats taking back the house, by a small majority, is not as earth changing as the left would like people to think. Anything they pass in the house, will die in the Senate. If they go the "GET TRUMP" route, they are killing themselves.
