I'm sorry Rahm, et. al, I like you as people, I really do. From outside the administration, I cannot tell for sure who isn't getting it done, but there have to be several for things to have gotten this bad so quickly. If I were President Obama, I would offer someone like a James Carville anything and everything to come in and straighten things out.

5. Fix the DNC.

Yeah, remember them? Another organization filled with people that I like a lot. And they are having no effect on anything. They aren't helping to push legislation, they aren't helping to excite the base, they aren't helping elect anyone. This wasn't true a year ago. There is one simple answer here. BRING BACK HOWARD DEAN. Beg him if you have to in order to get him to come back.

The only and I mean ONLY good piece of news about this is that it is a wakeup call. Losing one of Massachusetts' senate seats is an unmistakable signal that things have gone wrong. The President and Democrats in congress must resist the urge to go to the right after this. The Republicans and Tea-Baggers will not reward them if they do. They will only further alienate the Democratic base. Republicans and Tea-Baggers will not vote for centrist moving Democrats. The trend in the Republican Party and Tea Party community is to even primary moderate Republicans for not being Right Wing enough. President Obama and the Democrats have to get back in touch with the people of this country and rally the base. If they don't, we're looking at a real disaster this fall.
