    and yours is one more. I'm finding gems everywhere, things I've not found the words for before.  Looking back on it, it is as you suggest, still shocking in retrospect, and yes, the exact words for it are "caught off guard."  And you're so right when you say not just the president was caught off guard, but progressives too.  And finally, LOVE how you point out that hopefully we're a smarter party too, less innocent, but tougher and better honed, now that we know what we're up against.
