    So teh Democrats look to have suffered a major defeat. Almost everyone who supported Obamacare and the stimulus lost. The one Republican who lost to a Dem in the House was Joseph Cao, who not coincidentally was also the only Republican to vote for Obamacare.
    So what will they do:
    1) Blame everyone else and stay the course.
    2) Make a major reshuffling of personnel and priorities to reflect better the centrist mood of the country.

    My money is on 1).
    The GOP faced this exact thing in '06. I said then that if they didnt take those results seriously and do a major house cleaning they could kiss 2008 good bye. They didnt And they did. Now the Dems are in the same boat.

    Form a circular firing squad, naturally.

    Hunker down a bit. Wait for the impeachment and government shutdown...and watch President Obama win a second term.

    If you're digging yourself into a hole, doing nothing is an improvement.

    This guy will be such a fake as a centrist, he was what he was branded pre '08 election, his ego is getting crushed tonight, he will get very little sleep over the coming months.....

    If he veto's anything to deal with a Obamacare repeal he is toast in '12, which he probably is anyway......
