Wounded Dems look for answers

by Mike Lillis  |  published on November 7, 2014

Stung by this week’s heavy defeat at the polls, Democrats on Capitol Hill are aching for leaders to find a new direction in the next Congress.

The party suffered a long and painful night Tuesday as a GOP wave swept away its control of the Senate and carried Republicans toward their largest majority in the House in almost a century.

Democratic leaders have blamed the results on a perfect storm of circumstances that conspired to make this a historically tough election cycle.

Some rank-and-file members, however, are citing another factor: the timidity, as they see it, that has been shown by Democrats when it comes to confronting Republicans on the most pressing policies of the day.

The agitated lawmakers have stopped short of calling for a new crop of leaders — so far — but they do want to see the party take a new, more aggressive tack in the next Congress and beyond.
