Democrats Admit - Conservatives Won The Election

From Politico comes the admission that Democrats lost the last election.

The other lawmaker on the call, Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.), defends Pelosi. “The speaker doesn’t have the votes,” he said. “If you see what has happened in the Democratic Caucus, I don’t think you’d be quite as critical of the speaker. She really is trying. … We cobbled together a majority by winning in a lot of seats that tend to be conservative: in the South, in the rural Midwest, and so on. These members are very much afraid that if they get too far out front, they’re going to lose their seat, and they’re being advised to not take risks so we can sustain this majority.”
So the Democrats are advising their party to not go all out anti-war because it is a losing strategy.

I seem to recall saying not too long after the election that the Conservatives had won. The 2006 elections changed the Party in Control. It didn't change the governing philosophy at all.
