    Barack Obama won two groups at unprecedented levels in the post-war era -- blacks and youth. This feat carried with it two stark realities for the next contest. Both blocs have a low turnout rate in midterm elections. And both blocs were particularly personally attached to Obama and the change he personified.Obama's absence from the 2010 ballot was, therefore, always to be a problem for Democrats. But the gravity of that problem has grown with Democrats' larger problems.Next month, the Democratic National Committee will begin a $50 million program to turn out the Obama base in November.

    Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin says "mama grizzles" will punish Washington in November's midterm elections. Palin on Friday told an anti-abortion rights group that women will lead a Republican wave and stop the Democratic agenda. She also criticized President Barack Obama's health care overhaul. Palin said female activists - "mama grizzlies," she calls them - will help the party "take this country back."

    It was a jarring split screen.On one side of the television, members of Congress were bloviating about the need for financial reform to prevent another crisis.On the other side of the screen, Greek rioters were finally dispersing in a cloud of tear gas after their firebombs sent world markets skidding.Down in the lower right corner, the readout on the Dow looked like the altimeter on a nose-diving jet.How funny that anyone would promise to bring security and predictability to a financial world that can be undone by the protests of some uncivil servants in a little country in the corner...

    There’s a lot of political ferment and discontent out there, a sense that the political universe may be reordering itself in unpredictable ways. And over the weekend, it claimed a prominent victim. From Politico: “SALT LAKE CITY — It’s on. The first incumbent of the 2010 election year crashed and burned Saturday, and there’s ample cause for alarm for officeholders everywhere. There was no personal scandal, no whiff of corruption, no silver bullet here. Republican Sen. Robert Bennett was one of the most powerful and likable members of the Senate, he diligently protected Utah’s interests from his post in GOP...

    Wow. Who says conservatives can’t do multimedia?     By Jon Ward | Published: 04/23/10 at 2:55 PM | Updated: 04/23/10 at 4:34 PM The Republican Governor’s Association put out a video Friday that is a pretty slick piece of work. It’s basically an 80-second movie trailer that casts President Obama as the villain of modern American politics, with Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid as his sidekick and henchman. But it’s a pretty impressive piece of multimedia, especially since conservatives are generally thought of as being pretty lame in that realm. The music, editing, pacing and graphics are top notch....
