'SNL': Washington Democrats Dream Of Merrier Headlines In 2011 (VIDEO)

Between Christine O'Donnell and Julian Assange, this season of "Saturday Night Live" has had more than enough material for its political cold openings. On the last episode of the season this weekend, the show opened with a whimsical, Christmas-inspired montage where it's revealed what Washington Democrats are dreaming about in the coming new year.
