Some perspective

Posted By on Thu, Nov 5, 2009 at 7:06 AM

E.J. Dionne Jr. offers some perspective on Tuesday's elections.  Democrats should take warning, he says, and President Obama needs to use his much-celebrated grass-roots political organization to start making people feel hopeful again.  But the night's big loser?

the national conservative political machine -- the wealthy tax-cutters at the Club for Growth and the Palin-Limbaugh-Beck complex. The Beltway Right shoved aside local Republicans in an Upstate New York congressional race, imposed their own candidate who didn't even live in the district, and went down in a heap.
