Democrats, incumbents get wake-up call

• Politico
The off-year elections were, in two big races, an unmistakable rebuke of Democrats, reshuffling Obama’s political circumstances in ways likely to have severe near-term consequences for his policy agenda and larger governing strategy.

Independents took flight from Democrats. They suffered humiliating gubernatorial losses in traditionally Democratic New Jersey, where Obama lent his prestige in a pair of eleventh-hour campaign rallies Sunday, and in Virginia, which had been trending leftward and just last year was held up as an example of how Obama was redrawing the political map in his favor.

 How can Democrats get a wake-up call because two whole Repuglicans were elected to office instead of them?  Also, if overwhelmingly electing Democrats in the past 4 years hasn't been a wake up call to either side, why would this be?  See, the problem with partisanship is that both sides assume that they're different and better.  Unfortunately, today in Amerika, Democrats and Republicans are simply the same shit, different day.
