There is a good chance a republican, any republican could beat Obama in the next election. Democrats should decide which republican running would be the most palatable and someone they could work with and some with an above average IQ. This would help protect the country from the dimwits ala Palin and Jesus fanatics. Romney might be a good choice for the dems, he's smart and accomplished and doesn't seem like a party line fanatic and being a Morman he sure isn't a Jesus nut. It will require voting in the republican primary though and that might be hard for some to do.
