With these overriding majorities IB both houses they'll .be In a far batter position to, sh,ape and put through the kind of 'programs they jtont. And, if Eisenhower falters a his leadership, thsy may wind up doing most of lho,',leatiing, 6ut these big majorities mean they'll also hnve to take more responsibility for any failures to put through Congress what the people wunt. When their margin over the Republicans Was smaller, Ihe two parties could blame each other for what went wrong, fiy the same token, of course, the Democrats can . claim more Vcdlt for the good thing's. It would seem that by sticking together on programs with voter a'ppeal the Democrats can grease 'their way towards the 1960 ' elections. But the balance among' the Democrats — between. 'Southern ; conservatives and more liberal Northerners and Westerners — was changed Tuesday In favor of the latter. , This mny mean sharper in-fight- f 'g between the two groups, and it certainly will in the fielcTol' civil rights. The spectacle of Democrats split and wrangling won't -Increase their 1900 appeal. , And no matter how pod 'the Democrats' legislative record is, these next two years, there's still n chance the" party will -split wide open at the 1960 convention over civil rights. • If that happens — if the South« Tiers walk out or rally around a ird party in the South — "the door is opened for ' a < Republican victory. The Southern members of Congress will think twice before letting that happen. For this reason: ' ',. 'In this Democratic. Congress Southerners hold a majority of the committee chairmanships, ''which are prize plums, They'd lose the, chairmanships if the Republicans won, % i .
