    True, there is no point in replacing an idiot with another idiot, it's counterproductive.

    Why ty :P

    Indeed.
    It is one of the greatest things about the US system.
    It ensures that people have to go back to the electorate keeping them in touch with public opinion rather than insulated for it.

    there is reason to believe a 3rd party will rise to power. The conditions parrallel that of Ross Perot's time in 1992/1996. The difference is, the 3rd party, whatever it may be, needs a leader that actually cares about winning.

    With the 2 parties having a stranglehold over ballots, there needs to be a powerful movement to dent the ingrained power structure of the Corrupt politicians in both parties.

    It's possible that Obama will save the economy and make our health care system the envy of the world, no matter what your class. Short of that the pendulum will swing back to the right at least a bit, probably a lot, with the amount dependant on the specifics. I just hope we don't have to endure a half a year of crap about the "death of the democratic party" like we did when the pendulum swung to the left

    I think it's likely that the Republicans will pick up some seats in 2010...but enough to take back Congress? I think the odds are still against them for taking back the House, and I think it's downright impossible for them to take back the Senate.

    At any rate, if losing the House is the consequence of universal health care, so be it. This is more important.

    universal Health care that is being discussed will be worse then what we have now.

    The experience of nearly every other developed country in the world suggests otherwise.

    While the health care debate is loud at the moment, I doubt that the heavy emotion will carry over till the midterm elections. I suspect that what people will be voting on in 2010 is the economy more than anything else, and by a fairly large margin. If democrats push through a health care reform bill this year(getting it out of the daily news cycle next year), and it does not directly negatively effect most voters by election time, I think health care will be mostly a nonissue come election time. I think that the odds of republicans gaining enough seats in congress to significantly change the balance of power is almost zero.

    No it will not lead to another republican revolution. Reason is pretty simple.. the fragmented leadership of the Republican party... it is a headless chicken at the moment.
