    All those wasted months fucking around and blatant disrespect, courtesy Rahm Emanuel, Max Baucus and Kent Conrad, demoralized the base heading into 2010 midterms. Not to mention losing Ted Kennedy's seat, which was unthinkable and sent shockwaves through the party. After that, anything short of a public option wasn't gonna cut it as far as rallying progressives.

    If the Dem leadership don't wise up pretty soon and grow a pair, the GOP will be back in the majority.

      After losing Ted Kennedy's seat to a teabagger earlier that same year. That tells you how much Dems screwed the pooch through political malpractice.

      The way Harry Reid has conducted himself recently, which reeks of Baucus and Conrad in 2009/10, Dems could lose good senators and congressmen. With an improving economy, that would be unforgivable.
