    the problem with your spin is that it won't be Republicans that blocked the will have been Democrats.  Remember the last go-round implored the voters to get a 60+ filibuster-proof senate.  The voters did their job.

      But it'll be the only spin we have.

      And it's not like the Republicans will contest it. Indeed, they'll run on how they successfully obstructed Dem efforts to rile up their own base.

    •  The voters gave us Lieberman (0+ / 0-)

      Not exactly a Democrat.

      If Lieberman costs the country health care, I would not only strip him of his chairmanship, but go after him tooth and nail in 2010.

      It may be that Reid is already using this as a threat (and if so, it's something we should never hear about, since if it's made public that would make it ineffective). This is no longer 2006, when Rove could promise White House help.

      On the other hand, given that Lieberman campaigned for McCain in 2008, it's already pretty clear that President Obama isn't exactly going to help him in 2010.

      Republicans can't accept that they've lost. Democrats can't accept that they've won.
