Be careful what you wish for ... There may be advantages to a divided government, but it won't be able to undo the damage already done (Obamacare, e.g.) when we had an undivided government in 2009-2011. The train is running down the wrong track. If we had a divided government four years ago, maybe the train would still be stuck at the station. But now that it's heading full speed in the wrong direction, a divided crew with Obama at the controls isn't going to do what's needed to stop it or even slow it down.
