A Win for Markets

Last week’s Republican surprise has left pundits and news analysts hard-pressed to explain the sea change in American politics. A number of explanations—from the war with Iraq to lackluster campaigning by Democrats—have been put forward to understand an election that left Republicans in charge of the White House, the Senate, and the House of Representatives. Yet, in many ways, the election may be explained best as a re-affirmation of the principles of limited government, first established by the Founders. Moving beyond the political parties to the ideas and issues that concerned the voters provides important insights into the final results as well as guideposts for the new majority.

Seize the Momentum

In 1998, the congressional Republicans’ midterm election strategy backfired. Tired of fighting President Clinton on issues, Republicans instead tried to make the midterm election a referendum on impeachment. Republicans lost seats – almost losing control of the House of Representatives – and Newt Gingrich resigned. Conventional wisdom held that impeachment was over. What happened next is a part of history, but also very instructive for President Bush and the new congressional majority. Less than two months after the disaster of the 1998 midterm elections, the House of Representatives voted to impeach Bill Clinton. Through a series of self-inflicted wounds Bill Clinton managed to squander the political momentum of the elections, unite his opposition and face a humiliating political and legal defeat. The lesson is that the political momentum from midterm elections, if not handled carefully, can be very short-lived.

Worrisome Signs for Landrieu and the Left

Thanks to Louisiana’s unique election format, Democrats will be able to test a new campaign strategy formulated in the aftermath of last Tuesday’s defeat. Instead of downplaying the policy differences between themselves and President Bush, they will highlight them. But because of the electorate’s disfavor for Democratic positions where there is a genuine contrast, come December 8th, the day after the Louisiana Senatorial run-off election, Democratic strategists will likely be back to square one.

Same Faces, Same Issues

Although the midterm elections will bring 61 new Senators and Representatives to Congress, this week the same old faces are back in town. Because there is unfinished business that can’t wait until January, Congress is convening in a rare post-election “Lame Duck” session. This week, Congress will focus on the remaining appropriation bills, creating a new Homeland Security Department, moving forward on judicial nominees, passing out energy legislation stalled in conference committee, and possibly enacting terrorism insurance. Here’s a look at what could happen in the remaining days of the 107th Congress.

In an editorial titled “Grandma Doesn't Scare Anymore”, the Wall Street Journal today examined how the Social Security issue played during the 2002 elections. The Journal found that, despite Democrat scare tactics, in several key races GOP candidates won by taking principled stands in favor of Social Security reform. Some excerpts from today’s Wall Street Journal editorial:
