What's the quickest way to go from United States Senator to "whatever happened to..."? Completely ignore the calls, letters and poll results from your constituents and vote for Obamacare anyway. That's the lesson Senator Blanche Lincoln (D-Arkansas) is learning the hard way as her job approval rating and poll numbers are plummeting since she cast the all-important 60th vote for President Obama's health care reform legislation.

You know how it always seems to rain right after you wash your car? Well Senator Arlen Specter (D-Pennsylvania) seems to have parked his recently refurbished political career under an old oak tree full of well fed birds. After 44 years as an elected Republican, the five term senator switched parties in 2008 hoping to ride the Obama wave but finding himself being dragged under it instead.

Corzine to Deeds to Coakley. No they aren't the newest double play combination in the majors. They are three Democrats who desperately hoped President Barack Obama could save their failing campaigns by making a last minute joint appearance with them. Corzine and Deeds found out in November that Mr. Obama's political capital is non-transferable. Coakley is about to learn the same thing when the president travels to Massachusetts on Sunday.

The message from the voters was clear as Republicans took the Governor's mansion in both Virginia and New Jersey; two states which only a year ago voted to put Barack Obama in the Oval Office. Voters said a resounding no to Democrats and the Obama message in these two pivotal elections; results that will almost certainly sway many moderate Democrats in Congress from supporting the president's far left agenda.
