Seriously:

She's (arguably) the 3d most powerful political figure in the US, and she and Harry Reid allowed themselves to be manoeuvred by the Republican minority almost every time it counted.

The POTUS does not run Congress...

No he doesn't, but he acts as a roadblock when trying to pass legislation, doesn't he? I thought most of the really lefty libs are simply pissed that she didn't pursue impeachment.

No, he doesn't. That's what the minority leaders and other party apparatchiks in each house of Congress  are for, to bottle up legislation in any way that they can to keep it from getting to the floor for a vote. ONLY after it passes BOTH houses does the POTUS become involved by vetoing, although he can attempt to influence the process by threatening to do so (or not, for that matter).

Here's one thing they could have done: Instead of allowing the Republicans to filibuster by proclamation, they could have actually made them filibuster, a' la James Stewart in In Mr. Smith goes to Washington:

She didn't have the votes. That was reality.

Intersting factoid: Obama has not said that he will let bygones be bygones, and actually supports prosecution if it turns out that crimes were committed by ShrimpyCo.

And the majority party doesn't much of a majority in this Congress. I remember the TV pundits predicting two years ago on election night that this Congress wouldn't be able to get much done because of the razor-thin majority that the Dems won.

Figuring that the Dem majority in the Senate includes 2 independents, it's not even a majority.
