With Republicans winning gubernatorial races in both New Jersey and Virginia
, it's clear that a number of Dems may be in serious trouble in next year's elections. And so a moment of decision has arrived for the Washington Democrats who have been heedlessly leading their representatives off a far-left cliff.
Will they trim their sails so as to avoid an electoral debacle next year -- or, realizing that they may well be in serious political trouble no matter what they do, will they simply run harder and faster to encode as much of the left-wing wish list as possible into law before it becomes more difficult after 2010?
