With the Democrats looking like they will suffer major losses in today’s midterm elections, tomorrow is the first day of Obama’s Act II. How will he handle it?
Over at Swampland, our colleague Michael Crowley has an interesting reference point: Bill Clinton’s speech after the 1994 elections:
Clinton struck a hard note of conciliation, admitting that Democrats had not done enough to change the culture of Washington (sound familiar?) and urged Republicans to “join me in the center of the public debate where the best ideas for the next generation of American progress must come.” But he also warned against “jeopardizing this economic recovery by taking us back to the policies that failed us before.”
Will Obama hit the same notes? Read Michael’s full take over at Swampland.
