I sincerely hope that the GOP can move towards the ideological center. Otherwise, the Dems may have a strangle hold on the future of this country.
I don't think those losses will have an impact,while I agree last night showed that a majority of Americans don't vote for those candidates, the far right will ignore it and focus on the fact that Romney blew it.
