    Four years ago Republicans were gloating that the Democrat(ic) Party was extinct-- as usual, we were both irrelevant AND a bigger threat to America than the terrorists (WTF?!).

    It appears the GOP is worse off than we were.  Florida and Ohio were the only difference in two presidential elections, there was the Jeffords switch, and it took a lot of dirty Abramoff money to hold on to the not-so-permanent Republican majority.

    But 2009- Democrats need to learn a lesson from the 2001-2008 GOP: get something done.  Sure, they'll be smeared-- by Bayh, Blanche Lincoln, Lieberman ... and Specter?  But these power-for-the-sake-of-power Democrats are the ones who will make the GOP relevant again, by acting just like the Republicans (slightly more moderate) will be taking their place.
