Compromise with that.
Oh please... That is the goal of every member of the out of power party. Tip O'neil at times was pretty harsh with Reagan calling him a "Herbert Hoover with a smile, a cheerleader for selfishness". The goals of Reagan and O'neil were usually completely opposite. They learned how to compromise and work together. Newt Gingrich tried to make Bill Clinton a one term president through impeachment, yet they worked well together.
