    1. People had soured on the Iraq War (that's the main reason, and it's why Rumsfeld was dismissed the right after the 2006 elections).

    2. Katrina revealed as not just wrong on policy, but wholly incompetent at even the most basic, non-partisan functions of government.

    3. Various scandals involving GOP congress folk (I think there was a pedofilia scandal, there was the guy in San Diego who was the most corrupt congressman ever, there was the guy that cheated on his wife with a guy at a rest stop or whatever, blah blah blah, and Dems successfully painted the entire GOP with the scandals (Pelosi's "culture of corruption" rhetoric)).

    4. Dean's 50-state strategy which involved recruiting blue dogs in purple districts.
