Who represents the voters whose candidate lost?
Today as it has been over a hundred years, the candidates that win elections are either a democrat or a republican.
So if you are a D and a R is elected, or if your are an R and a D is elected, who is going to represent you in government for that position.
Remember, the D and the R are pretty much opposites in their goals, so when your candidate loses, that means your goal is not going to even be worked on by the opposite party winner.
Who is going to represent you, until the next election?
More often than not both sides are attempting to push their agenda which is why there is "gridlock". However at local and state level if you voted for the opposition party that lost an election then there really is no one who is (completely in agreement with what you want).
However odds are there are some things that a R and a D person might be on the same page about. History has also shown that even if your candidate wins it doesn't mean he or she will do everything you thought they would.
Sometimes it's not until they're elected that they realize they're not going to be able to keep all those promises they made. In most instances politicians will say whatever it takes to get elected.
Nobody. You have to suck it up and bear it. Only difference this time around: we learned that the opposition can refuse to govern for 8 years.
Now that's a new paradigm. Just can't wait to see it implemented on the other side. The whine will be heard around the world. "What do you mean, you refuse to work with me? I'm the president!"
ummmmm, 2008-2012. No need to work with prez, or even show respect. You can nullify the other half of the country at will!
Yay! My way or nothing. Wooohoooooo

Listening to a couple political pundits discussing a local election result - I heard them agree that the low voter turnout for the election probably helped unseat an incumbent.Their logic was that the voters that did bother to vote were probably more-informed voters than would be the case when...

What are you going to do the day after the election?I think most of us pretty much know who we are voting for at this point, so no matter who wins - lets let the cards fall where they may and look ahead: how will you start de-stressing after the hairy-scary national show is over?Will you be okay if...

Is it time to consider a coalition government?It is my opinion that neither party, Democrat or Republican, can win a national election with just their base. Both parties need some part of the Independent or undecided vote to gain an election victory.The far Left seems to think that only they know...

With politics headed its own way once again after an election the opposition wishes to offer Sarah Palin as the answer. Is it time the American people stopped swallowing the warmed over platforms and knee jerk issues and took the country back from the Banks and Big Business?
