POLITICO Arena: Colleen Holmes's response to 'Fall of the angry left? Will purity doom Republicans in November?'

Last night's election results and pundits' premature proclamations of political forces' demise prove once again that political strategists underestimate American voters.

If there is an emerging trend to be discerned in 2010 so far, it's that more than ever voters are doing their homework and are thinking for themselves.
Labels like "establishment," "tea party" or "moderate" and national endorsements were neither determinative nor fatal across the board.

At a national level, strategists are looking for poison pills and panaceas. Voters, on the other hand, are looking for candidates with principles and plans they're satisfied will best serve their communities.
