    This may be a clue:

    Furthermore, the real import of these protests is not the protests themselves but the deep need for solutions outside of the political duopoly and the realm of government.

    This movement represents trouble for Democrats at the polls, much as the Tea Party upsets the Republican faithful (witness the  disarray the teabaggers have caused among the GOP candidates).

    The operative meme is "the Republican and Democratic parties are the same." Look for a quixotic third-party candidate to come out of these "occupation" exercises who will siphon off Obama votes in 2012, leading to a Republican victory, much as Nader gave us Bush in 2000.
