Obama's legacy is set-
"Because it's something for people to run on," said Cokie Roberts as part of a Sunday (Jan 2015 SOTU) pundit analysis on ABC's This Week.
"He's lost almost 70 Democrats since he's been president," Roberts said of Congress, "and more than 900 state legislators. So he needs to give Democrats something to run on."
We had heard iterations of Democratic losses on the congressional level, but never such a large number of losses for Democrats in legislatures across the country.
Turns out, Roberts is correct.
That was before Tuesday night. The democrats are in their weakest position since the 1920's.
Obama's legacy is certainly cemented.
