Voters’ desire for change put Democrats into office in 2008. And it’s coming back to take them from office in today’s elections, Roll Call reports.

“Part of what’s happened is we’ve had three election cycles where midterm,elections,voter,change,democrats,pelosiwe’ve convinced people that the system sucks,” Democratic consultant Dave Beattie says. “And they truly believe that the system sucks. So we’ve succeeded in convincing people of that, and now we have to live with their anger at being in a political system that sucks.”

Just four years ago, the Democrats took over Congress from the Republicans. Speaker-to-be Nancy Pelosi [pictured] said the 2006 elections represented a mandate “to restore stability and bipartisanship” in Washington. Obviously that didn’t transpire.

“We have a Congress today that is so bottled up, so tied up in knots,” says House Minority Leader John Boehner. “It’s time to open up the process and allow all Members of the House of Representatives the opportunity to debate bills, to offer amendments to bills and truly represent their constituents.”
