    Remember "HOPE"?

    If the Democrats cannot present a coherent program that helps people, they will have difficulty winning elections.

    If they do not actually help people (and make people feel that they are being helped) when they are in power (as they are now) they will have trouble winning reelection.

    The awfulness of the Republicans will be very secondary in most people mind with over 9% unemployment and the greatest environmental disaster in the nation's history unfolding in the Gulf.

    November is a referendum on the Democrats.

    That, unfortunately, is the nature of the two-party system.

    Obama's belief in the rule of law apparently takes the back seat to Obama's belief in his own ability to make the right call as executive. - Scott Horton
