How long will the honeymoon last?

One has to wonder how long the honeymoon between the Democrats and President Bush will last. Bush claims that partisanship is over.

I guess it has to be for him, since he no longer has a bunch of rubber stampers in his stead. Where was his "bipartisanship" before Tuesday? Remember his "mandate" when he won the 2004 election by only 2.5%?

I think the only "mandate" Bush has was his weekly conference call with Ted Haggard.

My prediction: The lame-duck Congress will try to push through a bunch of crappy bills (like Richard Pombo's Rape the Environment bill and the warrantless wiretapping bill), the President will sign them into law, and the Democrats will stew until January, when not only the honeymoon but the marriage will officially be over.
