Gubernatorial Prophecy

I've been hearing a lot of coverage and read even more about how these two Democratic Gubernatorial races were pre-cursors to the national midterm elections this year.

I think this is silly. I think people saying that it's in the bag for the Democrats because of two state-elections is going to make them lazy and stop trying. I don't see them trying to change. If this does teach them a lesson, it's that the old "I'm not Bush" campaign strategy won't work. They need to actually pick an issue. They need to offer differing issues and alternative plans. Like right now, the Democrats are screaming about the Republican proposed budget, but where is there sensible alternative? They just don't have one.

Besides, I guarantee that a democratic governer is New Jersey or Virginia has nothing to do with a mid-term senatorial race in California. It's comparing apples to bicycles. And it's not like it spells certain doom for the Republicans either. Didn't these same races go to the Democrats four years ago as well?

I think this is good news, I just don't think it's as good as everyone is making it out to be. I think it's being over-analyzed and my bet is the Democrats still won't learn their lesson. Although I hope they do.

That's my two cents.
