Happy Days Are Here Again, So Don't Screw It Up
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/chris-weigant/happy-days-...

Chris Weigant has the best summation of advice for the democratic party.

You should read the whole article, it's worth it IMHO.

"While impeachment would be silly and self-defeating, holding hearings in various committees is not -- if they're handled right. Pelosi and Reid should sit down with the new committee chairs and work out a timetable for hearings . Hold the most odious hearings first -- nobody is "for" war profiteering, for instance -- it has no political constituency beyond people making obscene amounts of money off the war. Then perhaps move on to the Katrina fiasco. Tackle the more sensitive hearings later.

Most importantly, hearings should be a steady trickle over the next two years, and definitely not a flood that happens immediately after Democrats take office. Slow and steady will remind voters -- over and over again -- what the Republicans (Bush and Cheney in particular) are capable of. This, if handled correctly, will enormously help whatever Democrat gets the nomination for the White House run in 2008."

1. I think the bills should be handled the same way. But the theme should be
control and thoughful management of your agenda.
