If the Democrats win in two weeks, there will be lots of advice in the Op/Ed pages telling them they should forego anything smacking of revenge, reach across the aisle, work with Republicans, and generally be meek and kind.
In the first place, when did the Republicans do that over the past six years, and where was that advice to them? In the second place, as Lance so clearly states, none of the moderate Republicans in the House are likely to be left afloat; the 200 or so Republicans who will be re-elected are the farthest of the far right. That's the way primary elections work these days.
Nope, I like the Dixie Chicks' reply:
Susie Madrak has Krugman's take on that advice.
