LEFT IS PUSHING HARDER
AFTER ELECTION LOSSES
“There’s a limit to which you can push the American population before they gently and politely push back though democratic means. And that’s exactly what we just saw. It is now impossible to deny that this country is in the middle of some kind of political realignment, and the people who run our country did not see it coming.”
It would be hard to disagree with that assessment. After the Republican sweep in Virginia (all three statewide offices plus a majority in the legislature), along with the razor-thin results in the (traditionally) Democratic bastion of New Jersey (still in dispute as I write this), and other GOP inroads around the country, “We’ve had enough!” is indeed the watchword of the moment.
As you’d expect, the Dems are receiving advice to do a “Bill Clinton,” and tack back toward the center. Will they heed such counsel?
