I know it will be hard to swallow at first, but consider:
- If the GOP had narrowly retained control, they would have had to perform miracles in the next two years to have any chance to regain control in 2008.
- Better to have a turning of the tide in an off-year than having a presidential nominee get swept up in an anti Republican tide.
- By having Speaker Nan in charge for the next two years it will be quite clear what Democrat leadership looks like and no one will want this in the White House... will they?
My mantra for the next 24 months: If you like Speaker Nan, You'll LOVE President Hill!
