  •  nor are any of the new Democrats... (6+ / 0-)

    The new Democrats aren't conservatives, either. I'm already sick of hearing this.

    None of the new Democrats who hold some conservative positions were elected because of them. Bob Casey may be pro-life, but people who give a damn about being pro-life voted for Sanitorium. Same for Shuler in NC - if they were voting on the issues where he was somewhat conservative, they voted for his opponent.

    On all the big issues that mattered in this election, the liberal candidate won.

    •  In short it was Iraq (0+ / 0-)

      Iraq, and yet more Iraq. Dems have always held the edge on domestic issues. But for the first time in a very long time we thrashed the R's on national security.

      There was culture of corruption, that probably shifted 10 to 12 seats in the house to the Dems, but we finally broke the Republican national security card in a election.

      What have you done to get a Democrat elected today?
