Two years is a very long time in a political cycle (eighteen months ago we were writing the Republican obituary). Enjoy the moment, but don't overly state its significance. There is real work to be done. Owning the power means you are now on the hook. Most of those seats will one day belong again to democrats. All you are buying is time.

2001-2008: Dissent is the highest form of patriotism.
2009-2016: Dissent is the highest form of racism.
2017-? (Probably): Dissent is the highest form of misogyny.
1938 was the last time any congress lost more seats than the Democrats did last night. You can try to marginalize that all you want, it's not working.
