The One Party Rule and Faulty Memory

Remember in 2006 when the Democratic rallying cry was "It's dangerous to have both the White House and the Congress in one parties hands?" Yeah I don't remember that either. But Rich Galen, former Press Secretary to Dan Quayle and Newt Gingrich does, apparently.

What I remember Democrats saying was that the Republicanoids had some nerve complaining about the way things were going considering they ran everything.

But Galen believes (and argues such in his latest article) that we convinced everybody that having the same party in power in both the Congress and the White House was a foolish thing to do. So, since they already gave the Congress to the Democrats they are forced to give the White House to the Repubilcans.

Yeah, I don't know if that is actually going to pan out. Rather I think people will vote for who they think would make the best President without losing a lot of sleep over whether or not he is in the same party as the party who controls Congress.
