If Republicans gain control of the Senate, what will that mean for the last two years of the Obama administration? As young people often say about their relationships on Facebook: It's complicated.On the legislation front, gridlock is likely to persist, and could get worse. Obama, whose agenda is already stymied, would be playing defense most of the time instead of offense.Since Republicans would need 60 votes in the Senate to overcome a filibuster and 67 to override a veto, their ability to enact their own agenda would be severely limited, as well.If Republicans seize the Senate, they would set the floor schedule and run the committees.
