When I think local co-op, I mostly end up thinking couch co-op since it would need to be able to handle (usually) two controller inputs.
Speaking of the RTS side, I don't know if a controller would be suited to it at all. Anyone remember StarCraft or Command and Conquer on N64?
Edit: I'll admit I'm a bit biased because of that last point.
Josh said it works great with an xbox controller, and we have one of those, a hotas, and a keyboard and mouse (we just play on my computer) so I think it would work just fine.

Sure, but our 2 gaming-capable computers are 2 floors apart which kind off negates the idea of local coop
I have two monitors though. I'm not sure my graphics card can draw to both, but...
