Democratic Midterm Nightmare: Is It Time for Black Voters to Form New Alliances?

The Democratic Party got a well-deserved spanking in the midterm elections. There is no other way to say it, but it was self-inflicted on many levels. Still, the Republican Party cannot coddle right wing extremists and do nothing for the next two years. It won’t bode well for them in 2016. I won’t lie, I was stunned. Very stunned. I didn’t expect a clean sweep last night. President Obama got a heckuva reality check....
