For the first time since 1994, when a national political revolt washed away the Democratic majorities in both the House and Senate, conditions are right for the development of another political “wave.” But this time, it is the Republicans who are most vulnerable if a wave breaks over the 2004 Congressional elections.
No, I’m not predicting that Democrats will catch a wave, only noting that for the first time in a decade all the ingredients for a dramatic event are present.
The long-term political outlook for President Bush and his party is far from rosy, even if the war against Iraq goes extremely well.
