    Comeon Annie, this is a Republican who claims to have voted for Obama. Much like people who call into C-Span on the Democratic line claiming to be something they are not... for effect.

    I'm sure some people are disappointed on the progress of healthcare and jobs but are still willing to give Democrats a chance. Let's see how the 2010 election plays out before trying to determine the direction the entire country is taking.

    Really should read the article, Sarah. It's more than one and there are warnings too regarding Democratic party members and their concerns...

    Are there elections every November?

    If so, is there any reason for this. or is that just the way it is?

    What a pain in the ass.

    I read enough of it to get where you're headed. The Democrats don't really need the warnings just yet. Republicans haven't done anything to show voters that they are ready to become viable and actually work to get elected.

    They just have this sense of entitlement.

    I voted this morning. We have local elections and issues. I voted for casinos again, not that it will pass here in Ohio but we can always put our two cents in.

    For the US Congress every 2 years is an election, On off years the States have different schedules so yes there are elections every year.
