Good question. I too think they should have gotten tougher "BEFORE" the election instead of waiting till after. Don't get me wrong i am glad they finally got tougher, but as you mentioned it would have helped them a lot if they had done more before the elections. I know elections are a "scary" thing for some, and they don't want to anger any of the voters, but they also have to understand that a lot of voters stayed home because they weren't rallied like the right was.
All I cans say is I hope the don't lose their new found backbone!
