When is a President more likely to be successful in using persuasive skills with Congress?

I'm not sure exactly what you are looking for, but here is one possible answer. When the president and the majority of Congress is of the same party the President will use persuasive ways to get his bills passed. The president will appear at campaign stops in order to help get the congressmen on his side. Congressmen up for election need a lot of money for re-election and a visiting president will get him that money. This is happening right now for the 2006 elections. Bush is visiting with GOP congressmen at privite donation dinners. He is also making public stops with them, but not too many, because his ratings are real low at this point. Hope this help, Christopher Moats

When did democrats control congress?

From what I can find the Republican party controlled both houses of Congress from 2002 through 2006. In the 2006 elections, Democrats took a small majority of 51-49 in the senate and 233-202 in the House of Representatives which they held for the two years leading up to the 2008 election. Update:In the 1994 midterm elections Republicans regained control of both the Senate and the House of Representatives. The Republicans lost control of the Senate in 2001 by one vote due to Sanders of Vt switching to Independent caucusing with the Democrats. The Republicans regained control in 2003 maintaining a majority in both houses losing control only in the 2006 elections. Source: During the administration of President Franklin D. Roosevelt (1933-45), the Democratic Party controlled both houses of Congress. The Republicans won control of both houses in the 1946 elections, only to lose them in 1948; with Dwight D. Eisenhower's election to the presidency in 1952, the Republicans again won both houses. However, after the Democratic Party again won back control in the elections of 1954, it was the majority party in both houses of Congress for most of the next 40 years; the Republicans were only able to win control of the Senate for a six-year period (1981-87). The Republicans won a majority position in both houses of Congress in the elections of 1994. The Republicans controlled both houses until 2006, except the Senate for most of 2001 and 2002, when the Democrats had the majority after Jim Jeffords left the Republican Party to become an independent and caucus with the Democrats. In 2006, the Democratic Party regained control of the House of Representatives, and the results of the Senate elections yielded a Senate makeup of 49 Republicans, 49 Democrats, and two independents. In the 110th Congress (2007-08), the Democratic voting bloc has a 51-49 majority in the Senate because the two independents, Joseph Lieberman of Connecticut and Bernie Sanders of Vermont, align themselves with the Democratic Party. -Source: (US Congress)
