good article on politics: overreach and backlash

Good article on overreach and backlash. It over simplifies and summarizes the politics of the past 20 years.

The article has plenty of criticism for the right, but I found the below quote my favorite. In 2008, Dems thought they had 40 years of power, it lasted 2 years.

When Obama swept into office in 2008, Democratic strategists started talking demographic shifts that would ensure 40 years in power. Their unified reign lasted two years -- less, if you consider the backlash from independent voters who opposed the post-stimulus explosion of deficits and debt, and later the health care bill.
