My Political Magic Eight Ball --
Daily Kos and other sites are having a lot of Pollyanna-ish entries about how there is hope for future elections. I agree that there is hope, but the picture is less than perfect.

Consider, we lost a close election to an incompetent boob. Imagine if in 2008 the Republicans actually run a candidate who the left deems if not desirable then at least respectable. The Democrats are playing catch-up to a possibly underperforming G.O.P.

We should not confuse what is possible with what is likely. And the road to losing in 2008 is paved with inaccurate assumptions.
