Liz Cheney said on CBS's "Face the Nation," "I think that once he doesn't have control any longer of both houses of Congress, if he wants to get things done, I think he's going to have to move more to the center, which certainly will help the situation. I also suspect, because he is a very good politician, that he will get the message."
"What we've seen is a president who has taken much more radical positions than the people voted for in 2008," said Cheney, daughter of former vice president Dick Cheney.
In another post-election prediction, Bill Galston, who worked in the Clinton White House, said, "I think there's going to be an early confrontation, particularly if there's a fired-up new majority in the House of Representatives with perhaps 80 new representatives beholden in some ways to the Tea Party people. But ... I can tell you that the confrontation comes to an end when one side or another hits a wall."
