Party Like It’s 1994?

I’m beginning to notice more and more chatter comparing the 2006 elections to the 1994 elections. One distinction I notice right off the bat is that in 1994 Republicans had a mission—smaller government. (Stop that snickering! Stop it!) Do today’s Democrats have a similar unifying theme? Let me rephrase that: What the hell do Democrats stand for these days? Do they have any big names carrying the Democrat banner? There’s Barack Obama, I suppose, but so far the Democrats have done a terrible job marketing him (“He’s young, he’s black, and he’s not nearly as annoying as our other black guys like Jackson and Sharpton!”). The Republicans are practically begging the Democrats to take over Congress in 2006. Are the Democrats going to screw up again, like they have the past three elections?
