I'm obviously disappointed with the results. However, if the Dems push their hand to hard, they will be in for a rude awakening. Will they cater to the far left who wants us out of Iraq now which make us and the region less safe? Or, will they be held in check by all the more conservative Dems they put up to win seats.
I haven't done a full analysis yet, but one early thing I see is that blue states have become more blue. It will be interesting to see how all this plays out over the next two years. There were some major defeats in red states, Ohio for example, but overall it looks like blue states are more blue and red states are still red.
One thing I'm fully convinced is that Repubs did themselves a lot of harm by moving to the center and forgetting their base ideals that brought them to power. Hopefully this will be a wake up call to get back to our values and not run from them. That's what I'll be working hard for the next two years.
