“It will be paralyzing for a while, it will,” said Neera Tanden, president and CEO of the Center for American Progress. “Candidly, I think there will be a fair amount of soul searching and people will feel back on their heels... We will have to rebuild. But the resistance is built on opposition to [Donald] Trump's extremism. And the more extreme he is, the more we will have.”
Or, as veteran Democratic strategist Paul Begala put it: “After all this work, all these volunteers, it would be absolutely shattering.”
It is hard to see how the Dems lose the House given the level of anger toward Trump coming from the legacy media and from some corners of the country. It's hard to see them not squeaking things out. But Begala is absolutely correct. A loss would be "shattering".
