Preston on Politics: Democrats prepare for the worst

Washington (CNN) - It has been said over and over again: The 2010 midterm is the anti-incumbent, anti-Washington and by virtue of their position in power, the anti-Democratic election.

A sputtering economy, 9.6 percent national unemployment rate, housing crisis and little hope for a quick turnaround on the jobs front has forced Democrats on the defense heading into November.

OK, that is an understatement.

    The only hope for American wages is organized labor. If we had guts like workers in France the middle class wouldn't be hurting. The Dems need to realize this and stop pandering to corporate outsourcing goons.

    Americans never seize to amaze. They would rather chop their own noses off to spite the other fellow. Palin? O'donnell?
    Angle? You have got to be kidding. Voting mere zealots into office as if its not going to effect you at all. Funny Americans.
