It will be remembered by many pundits as the midterm massacres of 2010.

This past election night, the Democratic Party suffered the biggest seat loss since World War II.  Frustrated with the economy and the bitter partisanship on both sides, American voters painted the electoral map red- leaving some blue around the edges.  Even President Obama, much maligned for his confidence called it ‘humbling.’

Much of the coverage the day after was a political junkies dream, but the elections have also proved to be a good model of how a Madame can survive a “schlacking” and put her comeback in the works.
