    The Goppers have lost the younger generation.  That means they are doomed.

    I don't hold out much hope for 2014---off-Prez years are generally bad for us, as turnout is always low.

    2016 may even be too soon.  

    But it is as inevitable as snow in wintertime.  The pendulum is swinging back. The Reagan Revolution is over.

    It remains to be seen whether the Dem leadership will lead, follow, or get out of the way.

    In the end, reality always wins.

      What about 2006? That was different of course because the government was wholly Republican-held, but that was similar to our big loss in 2010. In 2002 we had a bad year because of 9/11.

      ...better the occasional faults of a government that lives in a spirit of charity, than the consistent omissions of a government frozen in the ice of its own indifference. -FDR, 1936

        I don't see how he can survive the election.

        Crist is no prize, but I think he'll mop the floor with Scott.
