Mid Term Lessons & Latino Vote

Obama has time to recover but he will need to change course like Bill Clinton did in 1994 to save his Presidency from becoming a one term mandate. The Obama Democrats lost more seat than Truman Democrats, Johnson Democrats to the Republicans. It will take cooperation and effort by both parties to lift the United States out of this economic maelstrom. The Democrats remain in control of the Senate. Will the Obama administration accept the spending cuts and tax cuts demanded by the mid term elections?

We will have a similar situation in Canada with our multicultural composition in our larger cities, are they a political force that parties will need to win through policy?
