The United States goes to the polls today to elect a new House of Representatives and one-third of the Senate. It’s a make-or-break moment for both parties, but could yield greater dangers for the Democrats.
They’re expected to take the House of Representatives, and have an outside chance of grabbing the Senate too. But such high expectations mean that anything less will be seen as a victory for George Bush’s party. And the potential pitfalls don’t end late tonight.
If the Democrats gain the House, they’ll surely use their position – which as Adam Brookes points out isn’t that powerful – to initiate inquries into everything that took place over the last 6 years under George Bush. So we’ll see inquiries into Iraq, Afghanistan, global warming and anything else Bush has cocked up (a potentially long list).
But they risk being so righteous that they make themselves unelectable. Come 2008, with a Presidential election and a real chance to take the Senate – and the Democrats might have squandered their chances by appearing universally negative and leaving little time to invent ideas of their own.
They won’t win an election by posturing and screaming at the Republicans. They need ideas – on Iraq, Afghanistan, and of course global warming – and they need to start thinking on their feet.

This is the funniest online video I've seen in ages. It works on so many levels.
The band The Right Brothers have put together this clever little ditty entitled 'Bush Was Right', sticking it to the lefties of us who think the war in Iraq (not to mention the entire Bush administration) has been a sham.
Firstly, the song-writing is brilliant. Think school-playground taunt, but a bit more childish.
Secondly, these guys are so naive you almost want to go and give them a hug and tell them everything will be OK eventually. They've picked up on this bizarre impression that 1) the American economy is great and the war in Iraq is going brilliantly and 2) it's all because of Bush.
Thirdly, they're like a fat, right-wing, Green Day, albeit with less talent.
You won't regret downloading this one…
