Divorce, American style

As Kos points out, the divorce of the American people from the Republican party has only just begun. An NPR poll shows that there is a large trend in the Dems favor going into the new Congress.

Of course, it is the Dems to screw up and I will remain guardedly optimistic. Being old enough to have watched the Dem implosion of the early 90s, culminating in the "Republican revolution" in 1994, I hope the Dems can learn from the past and shape up. I think if they really come through with ethics reform, raise the minimum wage, and doggedly pursue the Bush administration with their oversight power, we may enjoy a long and prosperous Dem hegemony.
