Peter Beinart explains it all

Peter Beinart via Mike Allen,
Americans want government to impose law and order — to keep their 401(k)s from going down, to keep their health care premiums from going up, to keep their jobs from going overseas — and they don’t much care whose heads Washington has to bash to do it. … If [Obama] can do what F.D.R. did — make American capitalism stabler and less savage — he will establish a Democratic majority that dominates U.S. politics for a generation. And despite the daunting problems he inherits, he’s got an excellent chance.
Beinart is absolutely right and partisans on both sides should remember this.
