Yeah, it looks grim for Dems at the moment, as the brutal triage process ramps up. By any measure, Boswell is among those triages in rather than out. And Braley and Loebsack, who took back districts that naturally leaned Democratic, are a very different kind of Class of 2006 member than, say, a Zack Space who won on red turf with an assist from a Republican scandal.
But we may not be looking at 1994 here. It's more like 1982:
Obama and the Democrats will not be caught off guard this time. If they can continue to link the possibility of a new Republican majority to a return to Bush policies, while also communicating their own vision of a new dawn for America, voters may be ready to listen.
