Close through October doesn't really mean much when the result in November is a blowout. And without winning the White House controlling the House and Senate doesn't really forward the Republican agenda, unless you are picturing a sufficient majority to override, and I don't see that coming. Do you see any strategy that sets up the Republicans to win the presidential race in 2016, or is the albatross of GWB still too fresh on their necks? I really think control of the Senate hurts them more than it helps them. As you said, we've spent four years without having to look at Republican ideas, but the congress at this point really has no choice but to put their agenda into the form of actual bills which can be shown to the public. That's going to freshen the albatross, not bury it.
