    I heard that the previous Dem winner in that district got 65% of the vote, but it dropped to 53% on Tuesday. Like you said, very little news on this race. Do you know if the percentage really dropped that much?

    VP? Hell, why go to the VP, just pull up the recent meeting in the Oval Office with the man himself, with Olbermann, Maddow, Schultz, and Gwen Iffel. Not well reported or acknowledged though.

    Re: Conservative Loses Upstate House Race in Blow to Right

    very underreported, first i've heard of it, this morning on howie kurtz' reliable sources

    dems have their own ny23 "problem" in the far west

    greenie outsider mcginn beats establishment mallahan for seattle mayor

    McGinn leads Mallahan in Seattle mayor's race

    also underreported, also via kurtz

    reds win across the board in pennsylvania locals

    Commonwealth of PA - Elections Information

    other than the links, i have no active role in the above transmission of info, i simply channel kurtz

    but i'd like to contribute this:

    PN, as you probably know, is one step on the dem side of the VA divide, just as NJ is two or more shades bluer

    just as IN is on the republican side of the VA wall

    that is, it's almost inconceivable that VA would go red and IN blue (which it did, IN, that's how big was obama's victory in november, he took quayle's state)

    PN is very, very bellwether

    most my life it's been a lucy-holding-the-football tease, not quite as frustrating for my side as NJ, but close

    PN changing colors, in our national spectrum, is HUGE

    Doesn't matter....we went from a weak moderate Democrat to a strong one.
    As long as they carry the district...I'd rather have a good one win by a few less points.

    So a "good" democrat got 12% fewer votes than a weak one, and you're happy???

    Absolutely. Who wouldn't rather have a strong candidate than a weak one?

    No, a good democrat is one that breaks his promises the minute he's elected.
