You can certainly make the case that they all suck, but that doesn't mean there isn't still a big difference between the two major parties and their records.
Part of the problem for the Democrats this election was making the voters aware of their accomplishments (even if you feel those accomplishments were underwhelming.)
The repukes, on the other hand, have done nothing but engage in political posturing, maneuvering, obstructionism, and sandbagging for the past two years.
You name the issue of importance to average Americans, and the repukes will turn it into a political football every single time.
For two years, the republi-cons sat on the sidelines and attacked Obama without saying anything about how they would fix the historical economic crisis they bequeathed to the president and his party.
They were not forthcoming with any straight answers on how they would fix the deficit, what programs they would cut, etc., during this election cycle - unless it was some bullsh*t proposal like cuts to endowments for the arts, earmark bans, etc.
