Election Debacle

Election Debacle

Politicians and pundits (even Joe Scarborough) seem to be trending toward  the position here about the big strategic mistake: Democratic candidates should have strongly supported Obama, not run away from, him and his record. Among other accomplishments, these could have been highlighted:

Millions have gained access to health care insurance

Avoidance of depression by saving finance industry

Saving auto industry

From huge job losses to creation of 8 million jobs

From over 10% unemployment to less than 6%

Improved student loan system

Got Bin Laden

And campaign appearances by President Obama could well have motivated black and young voters to get to the polls.
