    That's why we need to win all three... the presidency, the Senate and the House of Representatives.
    And we also need to not have policies that are entirely based on corporatist interests. We can't go on sending trillions to financial institutions so they can run derivatives scams. We need to look at the Clinton championed "free trade." Corporations and the richest individuals in the US have had a 30 year run. Mitt and the Republicans want to take everything and anything off the table for Americans. Is seems the Democrats want to keep the status quo of vast wealth divergence but still try to keep some minimal social systems intact. But you can't have it both ways. And I think that as long as the Democrats want to be simultaneously Wall Street "friendly" (meaning indefinitely supporting the speculative financial industries that are draining the world economy), they will look like weak hypocrites and will continue to have problems maintaining majorities in Congress, even against the most frightening, radically stupid tea party Republicans.
