A shift in political sensibilities can be measured in the primary results across the country yesterday. With Haley’s victory and that of Sharron Angle in Nevada, a Tea Party activist, it may now be considered a political sea change.

As the “Tea Party” right has gained strength, Obama’s hope-and-change left has faded, writes The Washington Post’s Dana Milbank. Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was ruthlessly heckled by progressive activists at a Campaign for America’s Future rally.

After a musical break that included the Rolling Stones' "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction," conference organizer Robert Borosage's co-director, Roger Hickey, complained, writes Milbank. "Larry Summers and Tim Geithner and Rahm Emanuel don't see themselves as part of a movement, and we often see them as part of a problem," he said.

Possibly part of the liberals’ problems today is that they are still taking their cues from Mick Jagger and Eldridge Cleaver.
