All Republican

"Bush can stay exactly where he is on tax policy, on foreign policy, on economic policy," said Dr. Bob Roberts, political analyst.

Now that the GOP is in full control, you can expect it to further its agenda.

"It means Bush is going to get his judges through. He's going to get his tax cuts," added Roberts.

But judges and tax cuts, along with social security, Medicare, and prescription drugs will all take a back seat to the biggest issue.

"Foreign policy will continue to be his agenda because that has worked best for him," said Roberts. He says this shift of power shows a vast majority of Americans are supporting the president and his dealings with Saddam Hussein.

There is also the possibility Bush will get to appoint a Supreme Court Justice. But according to Roberts, he'll have to choose wisely.

"There are a number of liberal republican senators, particularly pro-choice republican senators who would not join in supporting a pro-life Supreme Court Justice."

Roberts says this is a time where Democrats will try to regroup and figure out where they went wrong.
