    important thing.  Sometimes the best strategy for dealing with conservative Republicans is to just stand back and give them plenty of room to do themselves in.  I wouldn't rely on it solely.  But their public policies are so unappealing that people reject them if they can see them clearly for what they are.

    I live in Arizona.  Before November 6, we had 8 representatives in Congress, 3 Democrats and 5 Republicans.  In the new session, Arizona will have 5 Democrats and 4 Republicans.  Don't forget the state's reputation and the effect of redistricting which was done under a Republican governor and a 70% Republican state house.  

    There's no media reporting on it, but the biggest story may be the voter suppression that took place.  We may have had a Democratic Senator too without that.  It just means people will know better next time.
