The middle rules?

Seems I'm not the only one who thinks moderation is going to be key.

From Gail Russell Chaddock and The Christian Science Monitor:
The terms of the Democrats' narrow victory make a politics of the center even more imperative. Most of the new Democrats in the Senate won by running as moderates or fiscal conservatives....

While Senate Democrats are expected to lock arms over issues such as the minimum wage, there may be a new centrist coalition on issues including immigration, national security, and privacy rights....

Conservative activists say that the centrist base of the new freshman class will limit how far the national Democratic Party can advance a more radical agenda.

I just hope they get it right and don't squabble to the point of gridlock.
