Tomorrow's Post-Election Analysis Today (Libertarian Democrat Edition)


Former Democratic National Committee spokesman and current "libertarian Democrat" Terry Michael has already released his post-election analysis, which begins thus:

The results of the 2006 mid-term election, if they're anything close to predictions, will suggest two near-seismic changes in the national political landscape.

Evangelical Christians, after three decades of dabbling in politics, are ready--perhaps even eager--to render unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's, and unto God the things which are not the Republican Party's.

And the Democrats' Cold War "soft-on-defense" ghost will be exorcized, a scarecrow image that has been propped up in the fields of American politics for years, not only by Republicans but by the foreign policy neo-conservative Democratic minority, which colluded in the Iraq War.

More here. Well worth a look.

For a contrarian view, check out Charles Krauthammer, who argues that no matter how much the GOP loses tomorrow, it's simply historical patterns regarding midterms during the sixth year of a president asserting themselves. [Hat tip: Monte Vista Bed and Breakfast]
