Revolution Redux?

An interesting look back at when Newt Gingrich led the Republican takeover of the House of Representatives.

However, I think the authors are being unfair to the Democrats by inplying that their leadership lacks the fervor that "new blood" would bring. They imply that the old liberals are holding the party back. In fact, old-school cats like John Conyers, Henry Waxman, and Charlie Rangel are the spark of the Democrats in the House. They have done more to try to make America understand the negative impacts of every scandal and misguided policy coming out of the Bush administration than a chamber full of young guns like Harold Ford ever would.

What's undermining the Democrats chances to retake the House is that nobody, old or new, has the guts to support the efforts of these long-timers who, thanks to their safe seats, can afford NOT to be afraid of Bush and the weakened Republican slime machine.
