Assistant Village Idiot: Sometimes It's Just Uncanny: "Sometimes it’s just uncanny. When I got in the car and turned on the radio this morning, the first sentence I heard was “2006 may go down in history as the year that Americans demanded a change from their government.” And it was the news announcer saying this. It wasn’t a Democratic candidate or a spinmeister. It wasn’t even a political commentator offering an opinion. It was the news announcer, giving us the proper interpretation of the results, I suppose, because that’s how he sees it. Republicans win 50-49, it’s a divided government, power should be shared, Bush should recognize this. Democrats win 50-49, it’s a mandate for change, the people have spoken. "

McConell was ready to share power had the situation been the reverse.
Now he is no doubt ready NOT to demand power sharing as the Dems did before.
...and of course the GOP "had" to do it because of some arcane tradition in the Senate or other.
The Tradition now is rapidly developing into:
Republicans Always Compromise,
Democrats are never even asked.
