Add the fact that Maine will likely elect a Senator who is not a Democrat or a Republican, and things get even more unpredictable.
In that case, should Obama win, looks like nothing will be accomplished.
Similarly in the unlikely reverse of Romney win but Democrat controlled House and Senate. The Democrats have pledged similarly.
You win everything or nothing happens. They should all lose their jobs
