Colorado Race Could Reassure Obama and Democrats
DENVER The predictions of doom for incumbents and establishment candidates this campaign season are proving to be more complex in the real world. On Tuesday, Senator Michael Bennet of Colorado, a Democrat who had hitched his star to the fortunes of President Obama, survived a bitter primary challenge.

But in this states Republican primary, a Tea Party-backed insurgent, Ken Buck, upended the candidate endorsed by Washington Republicans, Jane Norton, a former lieutenant governor.

The two victories suggested that the anticipated wrath of the American voter might not be quite ready to sweep away all before its path but the tide is still strong.

1. The tide is strong
on the Republican side. Their lunatic fringe is coming out in force.

Looks like this election might be (on the whole) a victory for the status quo, a "stay the course" election. That's bad news all around, because it will keep the blue dogs and pink tutus in control of our party.

3. Be careful of what you wish for
We're bound to have at least a few tea partiers in the House, and guaranteed to have at least one in the Senate after this coming election.
