Both Parties tacked to the right

Charles Krauthammer makes an interesting observation about the 2006 elections. Both parties tacked to the right. Republicans shed many of their moderate centrists (thus becoming more conservative) and Democrats elected a great many Congressmen with much more conservative points of view.

 Krauthammer dismisses the election as a minor earthquake. The challenge for Democrats is to hang on to the center ground. If their ultra-liberal wing has its say they could soon be out of power again.
