Depressingly, the script for the autumn is already easy to see. Dems will lose seats, in part because it was inevitable and in part because the economy sucks completely. All the very serious people will tell us that Obama "overreached" and was this crazy marxist hippie, and if only he'd be "center right" like the country supposedly is then Dems would be popular again.

They should unveil a major new jobs plan like today, and then spend the next few months talking about it nonstop even if they can't pass it. I have no sense that there's anything like that in the pipeline.
