The neocon movement has been soundly rejected. It took 20 years for the liberal Congress of the 70s to die, but only 12 for the neocon Congress to die. The Dems took control of the House and they have an excellent shot at taking control of the Senate. Bush is now a lame duck president, and the Dems are in a position to investigate the many possible wrongdoings by the Republicans. The Republicans probably can no longer threaten the nuclear option in the Senate. The minimum wage will most likely be increased. Health care will return to the agenda. Education will be back on the table. And Bush is going to fail, fail, fail as long as he stays with his unpopular and disastrous Iraqi policy. But, there were other victories as well. Arizona defeated the gay marriage ban; Missouri came out for stem cell research; South Dakota rejected the extremist abortion ban passed by their State government. And for all there years in power, what really has the right-wing accomplished? I can't think of one major accomplishment, other than tax cuts funded by massive deficits. Now, I'll grant you the victorious Democratic Party is hardly the liberal Party of yesterday, but the American people have placed on it the mantle of authority to find a better way than the Republican way. That shouldn't be too hard.
