    Making someone like Cruz Majority Leader would be like winning the Powerball lottery and flushing your ticket down the toilet. Cruz needs to be marginalized and made even more irrelevant than he already is. He's only "known" because the MSM likes to parade Republican imbeciles before the cameras to push their liberal agenda.

    This I can agree with. Cruz is inflammatory and the GOP has enough of that in the House. If within their control of the House and the Senate... the Senate starts acting as inflammatory as the House as Cruz is wont to do... I think it'd blow up in the GOP's faces come the general election.
    Mitch isn't going to leave, he won his re-election soundly so it's not like anyone's going to oppose him for the majority chair. I will say this though, on the flip side, if Cruz was running the Senate, and Obama AND him could find common ground, it mean a lot more with chances of passing if McConnell and Obama came up with something.

    I don't disagree, but Crist has been on the scene longer and I wanted a stake to the heart of that vampire once and for all - the good people of Florida can deal with Scott in four years, if they choose.

    I didn't hear that, either! This morning has been one of the most interesting that I've spent in a long while, thanks to DP, which gives me the opportunity to read posts from all over! Nice!

    I've got to get over to my granddaughter's house and resume painting an unending parade of window panes and sills! I'm beginning to fully understand how you felt with a mountain of dirt that had to be moved! Back later when it starts to get dark outside, which comes far too early for my liking, BTW!

They ended up waking back the race call for a few hours, but late last night, Brown conceded. I was at his event last night. We got home at 2 am. It was a well fought race for Brown. Manchester is just a big Democratic stronghold, and she got what she needed there (as well as in Concord and Portsmouth). Props to you for never caving in, as I did, to the polls which really showed Brown having a 50% chance of winning.
    NH I felt fairly safe going with Shaheen, it was North Carolina where I had my qualms. Alaska is still out and that is another state I had/have qualms on. Alaska is very hard to poll as seen in polls where one day Begich was up by 8 and the next Sullivan by 8. Few people and a lot of territory.

    Virginia was the biggest surprise, it wasn't even on my radar screen. It looks like Warner will pull it out, but wow. Very unexpected.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Crist annoyed me in being a convenient party flopper because he was addicted to political power. That was the gist of the beef I had with him. I just can't believe an obvious crook like Scott can get elected ESPECIALLY in the retirementville state of Florida after what he did to medicare.

    You are certainly made to feel welcome here as was I when I moved here in 92. It is a great state even though some California transplants wanted to convert it to a blue state That was blown away last night. Texans get it, personal responsibility, low taxes, and freedom resonate throughout this state as Democrats were overwhelmed again. The new darling of the Texas Democrat Party, Wendy Davis, was destroyed as were most Democrats running for statewide office. It really is too bad that far too many demonize Texas because of their jealousy of TX and its economy

    Yep, still arrogant too but let's see what he says today. The Obama agenda was soundly defeated last night, wonder if his arrogance will give way to common sense and reality

    As the Daily Show put it, Crist's main praise is being only the second creepiest person running for Florida governor.
