'Wake up, Democrats it's a new day'Quicklink submitted by Douglas Drenkow Permalink
|All across the nation, on a host of local issues, Americans demonstrated the polls are true: the Right is wrong for them. This is wonderful news for progressives of all stripes, but there is danger, too, and it's the same danger that has sunk the Left for the last decade: voters didn't vote for Democrats, they voted against Republicans.
If the Left wants to duplicate these results in 2006 and take back the Hill, it must respond to this victory not with conciliatory gee-whiz shuffling of feet, but with a full-out charge against the neoconservative agenda.
