Everywhere we look the signs seem so positive for a big November 7 for the Democratic Party, bringing with it a rebirth of checks and balances within our federal system. And also something more intangible, but at least as important: At last — no, at long last — an election that will bring some semblance of accountability to a national leadership that has served this nation so dishonorably.
But, of course, we’ve been disappointed so many times before. I don’t expect a repeat this time, but only a fool would discount the possibility. So what if the wave goes flat? What if the Democratic gains are only modest, leaving the GOP in control of both houses? How will we feel?
And does the fact you care as much as you do scare you, at least a little?
It scares the hell out of me.
