How The Democrats Will Rule The Next Generation

Every four years Americans hold a presidential election.
Somebody wins and somebody loses. That's life. But 2008 was
an anomaly. The election of President Barack Obama is about
something far bigger than four or even eight years in the
White House. Since 2004, Americans have been witnessing and
participating in the emergence of a Democratic majority that
will last not four but forty years.
To understand the
emergence of a lasting Democratic majority we'll first have
to spend a few moments reviewing the profound and relentless
incompetence of the Bush administration -- and the pursuant
collapse of the Republican Party. That means looking back at
the failure of Republican ideas -- including a wholesale
rejection of the myth of conservative superiority on the
economy -- and holding our noses long enough to survey the
gallery of truly repellent scoundrels, scandals, and
screwups that the Republican Party has been responsible for
over the last eight years.
After completing the unpleasant
but edifying task of autopsying the Republican Party, we'll
examine the underpinnings of Democratic victories in 2004,
2006, and 2008 -- and make the argument for why Democrats
are going to keep winning. (Two words: young people.) In
short, the Republicans are going to keep getting spanked
again and again for forty more years because we're right and
they're wrong, and Americans know it.
