    that doesn't prop up our cherished notions.

    The Democrats who lost in 2010 were almost all conservative Blue Dogs.

    This is because more conservatives and moderates voted for Republicans than they did in 2008, when they were demoralized by eight disastrous years of Dubya.

    We progressives were demoralized by Obama's baffling negotiation style, which mainly involved starting on the right with the GOP.

    But WE VOTED. Liberals did not stay home in 2010. Nor did we stay home in 2008. We held our noses and voted for nominally not-Republican guy.
