The biggest problem with abolishing the don't ask don't tell policy is sheer logistics imho. What are you going to do have showers for straight guys, gay guys, straight women and gay women? How can you force a gay person to shower with a straight person, that would be like making men and women shower together.

I don't think people think this stuff thru before they add it to their agenda and then no one calls them on it because they dont want to be a homophobe.

its happening more and more now all the things they were "hoping to change" they are getting serious back lash from the Real Public about the issues and are backing down.

Republicans are killing Dems in poll after poll for House and Senate Seats and Governorships. Even NJ is leaning Republican which is huge at the Governor level.
Concur...BUT the last thing I'd like to see is mid-terms held right now. Give the Dems another 18 months of rope with which to hang themselves, and I can see HUGE sweeping changes in the House and Senate next election.

It actually happens almost everytime a new party takes the whitehouse. Heck even when Reagan won the Whitehouse, the Republicans lost seats in the House and Congress. The Single Party rule really turns people off and since the white house (regardless of who is in) can not satisfy all the people all the time, when the election comes around mid term, the people vote against the white house party on a regular basis.

Check and Balance.

Even bigger reason for midterm losses is what political scientists call "surge and decline". When a party wins the White House, it is, by definition, a good year for that party. Which also means that party wins seats it wouldn't normally win. Two years later there's a regression to the mean and they lose those seats.

Which is also one of the reasons it didn't happen in 1998 and 2002. Clinton won by a plurality and Bush lost the popular vote, so there wasn't a high to come down from two years later. Impeachment and the war on Islamofascism, respectively, pushed the midterms even further in the in-party's direction.
