    Wow, GOP is having a great night for Statehouses. Saying MD and CT are leaning their way too. Crazy.

    I know - I am thoroughly embarrassed to have made that error! I was so elated that the Republicans will control the Senate, I screwed up! I missed that Crist has conceded too - that's what happens when you get phone calls from excited children! What an exciting night this has been! Wow!

    I don't think Obama gives a ****, and really why should he? I mean Clinton was facing a re-election so he had to. Look if Obama was going to play "ball" he would of done it after 2010.

    There's one particular extremely partisan liberal poster on the forum that declared it dead in 2009...you know, before the landslide in 2010 and then the wave this year.

    This is why the ridiculous calls that EITHER party is "dead" after these kind of elections is just laughable. It's going to take some time before either party truly really is "Dead" and it'd probably need MULTIPLE ones of these in a row for such to cause a sizable switch to what the second major party is in this country.

It's always a pendulum swing.


    I agree about the pendulum swing, but it is a very disappointing outcome for the progressives. I'm glad somebody is having fun tonight.

Then come back to the Senate and start dissecting it apart piece by piece on the parts they can, some which they have bipartisan support and take them to Obama's desk. No longer will Congress be the party of "No", if legislation doesn't move, it rests on Obama's head.
    Strangely enough, I'm not horribly against doing reconciliation to get rid of Obamacare because I think it's fair play to use the process that passed it to get rid of it.

    I'm just against Republicans pointing to the precedence of using reconciliation for something that wasn't primarily focused on setting a budget or changing the tax code as a mean and doing so to use it for all sorts of other various laws. Leave it to what it's historically been used for outside of Obamacare.

    Yeah, seems that Nate's been awfully quite throughout this election cycle.
    Or is it maybe that his results just weren't the stuff that the network news guys wanted to cover? Hmmm.
