Washington Dems Want to Win.......

One theory going around the blogs is that D.C. Dems in the House and Senate are too timid in confronting the GOP. I understand this point of view and agree with it, but here is my question. Assuming that they want to win, and assuming that they are not sufficiently confrontal with the GOP, why is that?
Are they too influenced by consultants? Are they too accomdating by nature, ie, what drives people to become Dems always makes them more willing to compromise with their opponents? Are they too afraid of losing their own positions? Are they too conservative for Dems but too liberal for the GOP? What do you think?
