    For the Democrats that held their seats after this Tuesday's election - they know that their seats are secure.

    For those that lost - they have nothing more to lose.

    While the Dems still have the majority in the house, they should ram thru a series of the most Liberal legislation that this country has ever seen. Force it down the Republicans throats - like they did with the Health Care Bill.

    They'll be NOTHING that the Republicans can do about it - the Dems will still control the Presidency and Senate for the next 2 years - so the Republicans can't change a thing.

    Then what they need to do, like the Republicans did for the past 2 years, is declare all out partisan warfare. Let the Republicans whine all they want - just keep them in their place - which is absolutely impotent. Holding the majority in the house alone is worth squat.

    The only reason why the Republicans won in the house is because they politically out manuevered the Democrats shamelessly - and Americans respected them for that - not their ideology.

    If the Democrats are willing to go head to head with the Republicans in a 2 years long pissing contest and WIN - they'll regain the house and retain the Presidency and the Senate.

    If they wimp out and give in to the Republicans - it's all over for them in the next elections.

    Politics in America is not about politics - it's about respect. Americans love a winner.

    Two thirds of the Senate did not even stand for re-election.

    They gave into Obama...where did it get them?

    Obama,and everyone on MSNBC cries every night about the fact that Obama can't get anything done because the GOP stops them at every opportunity.....

    So which is it ? Obama should ram everything down our throat or Obama can't get anything done because the GOP will stop them....and this was before Tuesday's election.

    The Democratic portion of those two-thirds ought to be smart enough to know that you don't win elections by wimping out!

    Richard H. needs to talk to his shrink about some stronger medicine. He's talking out of his ass.

    Obama should ram everything down their throat...because obviously, for the past 2 years, when he tried to cooperate with them it didn't work - they blocked him at almost every turn.

    Health Care - they should have gone with a single payer system or a least a public option. Instead they gave the Republicans the exact Health Care bill that the Republicans demanded. Then the Republicans turned around, refused to support it and turned it into the biggest debacle in political history.

    The Stimulus bill - instead of ramming thru a stimulus large enough to pull the economy out of it's rut, they settled for one half the size needed. The result was that while it helped somewhat, it didn't live up to Obama's promises - and that made it look like a total waste.

    The financial reform bill was also about half of what it should have been. Not much more than a slap on the wrist for Wall St.

    The Democrats may have passed alot that the Republicans opposed, but each and every bill was compromised - and made ineffective, which is exactly what the Republicans wanted.

    Even Jon Stewart said that the Obama administration was 'timid'.
