The State of Electoral Affairs

I caught this on Powerline, which is something every Democrat should read, and which is in keeping with my thoughts below on former Sen. John Edwards.

It quotes the great Michael Barone, whose political analysis is often perfect. Barone divides up the presidential vote by congressional district, and notes that there are quite a number of congressional districts where Bush had a strong showing, but where a Democrat Member of Congress got elected.

Barone further points out, as noted regarding John Edwards, obstructionism doesn't help, especially when you offer no alternative.

So Democrats may want to be watchful of things like this that could tend bolster the growing image that they are solely out to block Republicans out of bitterness and disappointment.
