Obama, Republicans reposition for shift in power
Peter Nicholas and James Oliphant
"As an uneasy realignment of political power began to solidify in Washington, President Obama conceded Wednesday that he had suffered "a shellacking" in the midterm election, and seemed headed toward a collision with Republican leaders over the administration's healthcare overhaul.
"Republicans formed transition teams and released reports outlining their plans while a somber Obama held a news conference that was a mix of contrition and defiance.
"Obama said he was open to compromise with Republican leaders, who picked up at least 60 seats in Tuesday's historic election, enough to regain control of the U.S. House when Congress opens its new session in January."
