What if we Democratic dogs catch the car and win both houses of Congress this year?
If I’m a Democratic presidential candidate, I’m not sure I’m happy about that. Here’s why:
- Democrats suddenly share the blame for anything that goes wrong, doesn’t go right or doesn’t get passed.
- Republicans get to run against Congress.
- Democratic members of Congress get more interested in protecting their new chairmanships – and new office suites – than electing a Democratic President who will probably lead them somewhere they don’t want to go.
Sometimes in politics, winning one election sows the seeds of the next defeat.
