SOTU

State of the Union didn't nearly meet expectations, it seemed like. Then again, it seemed like the Republicans were staking their entire year on it. Democrats should capitalize. Republicans confirmed Alito today, but they're still a sinking ship. Tomorrow will have more Abramoff headlines, more DeLay headlines, more administration scandal headlines. They don't have momentum unless we think they do. Their momentum is no larger than it was yesterday, last week, or six months ago.

And hey, for everyone who's upset about Alito's confirmation: you can't win 'em all. We'll win back some seats in November, and we'll start to do better. We'll win back the White House in 2008 and we'll do a lot better.
