Democrats sweep the House and Senate because the old guard of the Republican Party can't compromise and embrace the Tea Party conservative views.

Instead, they will cause a third party to splinter and form, splitting the votes and causing a Democrat sweep in practically every state of the union.

In the 2008 and 2012 presidential elections, the old guard lost with a moderate candidate, but in 2010, the Tea Party almost single-handedly recovered the House for the Republican Party.

Now we can look forward to a Democratic sweep of both Houses and two more long years of destruction of our country.

Virginia's governor race is the handwriting on the wall.

When will the old guard wake up? 

The Democrats would hate to see a conservative run on a Republican ticket. They want a moderate so they can beat them, but they will say they're afraid of the moderates and so will the media say it.
