A Center-RIGHT Country?

November 5, 2008

Tom Brokaw last night (via Washington Monthly): “This country, even with the election of Barack Obama last night, remains a very centered country, or maybe even center right in a lot of places.”

Right. Let me get this straight. The Democrats have won more votes in the presidential election in 4 out of the last 5 elections. Obama won the biggest percentage for a non-incumbent since Eisenhower in 1952. The Democrats won big in both houses of Congress in both 2006 and 2008. They control a solid majority of both state governorships and state legislatures. Registered Democrats greatly outnumber registered Republicans. But this is, according to Brokaw (and many other pundits, mind you), a CENTER-RIGHT COUNTRY??!!
