Democratic strategist James Carville questioned why the party exists in light of Senate Democrats inability to pass what Eliot Spitzer says the public wants.

Carville also gave an extremely glum assessment of long term unemployment predicting people will go hungry and commit suicide adding that “if you’re 55 and you live in Ohio and you don’t have a job now you are out of luck.”

That is not the message Obama and the Democrats want to hear with two years left before the 2012 elections.
