I'm writing this post very early on November 3, the day after the 2010 midterm elections. Republicans regained control of the House, and cut into the Democrat advantage in the Senate. Before I hear or read any of the inevitable mainstream media or Liberal pundits say that "Democrats did better/Republicans did worse" than expected, I'm publicly posting this point: Republicans gained the most seats in a midterm election since 1938. With some results still not certain, Republicans picked up somewhere between 60 and 70 seats. That's a pretty significant (historic?) achievement.
Don't let the mainstream media undersell what happened to Democrats.
