Democrats dare to dream of capturing the Bush heartland...

It's clear that a major shift is now taking place in the political landscape. I have seen evidence of this even among my own circle of friends. Much of the movement from the hard right to the center has to do with growing anger over the Iraq war.

This lead story in yesterday's Guardian (UK) details the shift that is taking place in such red states as Kansas. It now seems possible that the Democrats might gain control of the House or the Senate as a result of the November elections. This would be a good thing as the Cheney Administration is desperately in need of adult supervision.
