2014 was a great year for Republicans, but we would be overly confident to assume that the results signal a permanent shift in the electorate. The mercurial results of national elections going back decades signal deep dissatisfaction with both parties. As Senate Republicans transition from minority to majority, we must listen to what our citizens have said: this is not a license to get even, but a mandate to get going.
