Democrats see the writing on the wall: they’re going to suffer devastating losses in today’s elections. Now they’re trying to figure out how to deal with the aftermath, Politico reports .

Damage, control, democrats, bushMany experts recommend that President Barack Obama follow the humble path taken by President George W. Bush when the GOP ceded both houses of Congress in 2006. “Race by race, it was close,” Bush told reporters then. “The cumulative effect, however, was not too close. It was a thumping.”

Bush jettisoned plans to restructure Social Security and tried to work out a compromise with Democrats on immigration reform. Obama should adopt a similar strategy.

“Where they should go is to say: ‘The message of this election is that we all need to do better, including me,’ ” said Ken Duberstein, a former Reagan chief of staff who endorsed Obama in 2008. “That’s the tone they need to adopt.”
