Misreading the Mandate

The American people have spoken loudly, smashing the Democratic Party in every state. Well, almost every state – California seems to have become another country at this point, bucking the national trend and electing Democrats in all statewide offices.

For the rest of these United States, unity was the byword. Unity against the Democrats and the president that leads them. Even the most severely liberal states of Massachusetts and Maryland installed Republicans as governors. Democratic incumbent Senators went down like duck pins at the bowling alley. It was a wave, a sweep, a wipeout.

The beneficiaries of this political tsunami are the Republicans. Thrust into power across the nation, they now control of the national legislature with historic majorities.

All is well in America. Well, sort of.

When Bill Clinton was handed his historic comeuppance in the 1994 elections, where his party lost control of both houses of the Congress for the first time since Eisenhower was president, he promptly declared that the American people had spoken and that, in essence, the ideology of the left had been rejected.
