After the Fall: A Progressive Game Plan

November 2010
Nation;11/29/2010, Vol. 291 Issue 22, p17
In this article the authors discuss the strategies necessary for the U.S. Democratic Party following the significant electoral defeat it suffered in the 2010 midterm elections. The authors note that economic issues drove the election, and while voters did not blame the Democrats and U.S. president Barack Obama for the financial difficulties, they did find fault with their solutions to the problem. A number of other issues are examined including the recovery plan for the nation's banks, the strategies of the Republican Party, and actions of independent voters.
