There were sensible Democrats elected yesterday. Bruce Reed explains why.
Apart from a foolish summer fling with Ned Lamont and a late Laugh-In cameo from John Kerry, Democrats did just about everything right and ran their best campaign in a decade. Field marshals Rahm Emanuel and Chuck Schumer ignored the virtual industry of self-help nonsense that has paralyzed Democrats' chattering classes and went back to a simple, proven formula: From the suburbs to the heartland, elections are won in the center.It's good for America if the Democrats can hang on too some of these new Representatives. I'm not betting on it and guessing on a return to the self-help nonsense.
