Michael Barone's blog
on US News& World Report's
site is well worth reading. He notes that
This election was conducted in something like an idea—free zone.
Barone also list the very real accomplishments of the Republican Congress from 1994 to 2006 and notes that
The Democratic House will try to turn the clock back on these advances, but will probably not succeed during the next two years. The Democrats would like us to go slouching toward Scandinavia, even while Sweden and the Netherlands move in our direction to more healthcare options.
