I think this is just the first of many more to come. If the Democrats receive the full beat down they so richly deserve in November, I expect full war between Democrats to break out shortly after. As the blame game gets into full swing, expect the “we should have gone with Hillary” meme to get louder and louder.
While some on the left may feel a Hillary 2012 campaign would save the party, they should think again. Think back to the 2008 debates, how many times was it noted that there were no difference between Obama and Hillary on the issues. Any Republican can use that to make the point that the only difference between Hillary and Obama is packaging. Either way, you still get the same lousy liberal policies!
