At the risk of piling on here (but it's all that people are talking about), after seeing our own Rep. Doug Lamborn, arguably America's most conservative congressman, so gleeful on TV at the news of the Democrats losing that Senate seat "in the bluest of the blue states" to the Republicans, I just have to offer one observation.
Think about this, Rep. Lamborn ... Yes, that defeat was a serious wakeup call for the Democrats, but it cost them exactly ONE seat in the Senate. Granted, an important one. But if that's all the price that the Dems have to pay for this slap in the face, which should make them much better focused on the midterm elections in November when so much more will be at stake, then this might be the best thing that ever happened to the Democrats.
