wow, that is an excellent article.
Republicans might also recall what happened to Democrats when they tried to regain the House in 1996 by running with the same leadership and agenda that had been ousted in 1994. Those Democrats failed, despite Bill Clinton's victory at the top of the ticket, because too many voters saw the same old story. If Republicans lose again in 2008, they could be in the minority for a long time
Call your congressman as I did today & urge they choose new blood (my pref. was for Pence + Shaddeg and described Boehner as reaking of K. St.) - you have to do it today though because they're supposedly making a decision this weekend!
