I predict that President Obama is going to have a very difficult time getting anything he wants through the Congress after next Tuesday. The pressure on the Republican leadership, whether they like it or not, will be for them to pursue repeal of Obamacare and to prevent the rest of Obama's agenda from going into effect. The remaining Democrats will find the President increasingly irrelevant to their own interests. Depending how events play out, he will at best have to expend a lot more energy than he wants in keeping the congressional Democrats united, and at worst they may begin to rebel as they see him dragging their fortunes down with him. And if any serious scandals should erupt in such a political environment, I think we'll hear calls from both sides of the aisle for his resignation.
