The coroner will be able to tell each one of us what was once wrong with us! Of course, by THAT time, our hearing will be shot to heck! ;\)


Just wondering since we haven't had alot of political discussions on the board lately.

Would you agree that the Democratic party has been really inefficient since the election? Despite have a supermajority, they aren't able to pass any key legislation.

Losses of key democratic territories (losing TK's seat in MA) or likely to lose territories in 2010. One democrat even switched sides in the House. Biden's old seat will likely go republican. Bayh was an easy lock for reelection but with his retiring the state could easily go red. (http://www.npr.org/blogs/politicaljunkie/2010/02/2010_senate_ratings_gop_on_cou.html)

No Supreme Court nominations yet, which will have to come sometime before 2016.

Things aren't looking to turn around by 2010, so as the party in power you can't use any successes as rallying points. Meanwhile the Republican party can easy state things like "10% unemployment".

So what's your take on the current Democratic Party?
