The recently sworn-in 112th Congress brings the return of divided government, with a new Republican majority in the House and a diminished Democratic majority in the Senate. The political landscape of Capitol Hill will be strongly influenced by the interaction between a divided Congress and a Democratic Administration gearing up for the 2012 presidential elections-a dynamic that presents opportunities for both bipartisan cooperation as well as partisan gridlock on key policy initiatives.
