      a recount is still in the cards but with more than 6,000 voters as a cushion mr. Webb is a likely candidate for victory here.

    3. Rammstein on November 8th, 2006 8:13 am

      I was wrong, mr. Webb is up by about 8,000

      Yup Webb wins … running more like a Republican than a Democrat.

      It will be interesting to see the dynamic of the Democratic party the next two years. The Senior Democratic leadership in both House & Senate is liberal. The Dems that won last night are more like blue dog Democrats. Lets just see how they all get a long. Promises were made back home and if they go against them … they will get tossed in two years as well.

      The election last night can be summed up by the CT Senate race last night. An Independent Joe Lieberman who was cast our and called a traitor by his own party won convincingly. Remember, Lieberman is pro war.

      The far left candidate did not win. If the Dem’s like Pelosi think they are putting a liberal agenda in front of Americans they will be gone in the next election.

      Dems have been bitching & moaning for years … now it time for them to put up or shut up.

      Just saw (and sent to SM) an AP story saying that the Democrats won in Virginia, though there will be a recount.

      And the Republican guy in Montana, to the best of my knowledge, has not conceded formally.

      Even so, at this point it looks as though the Democrats control (easily) the House and the Senate, if the two independents (Lieberman of Connecticut and Sanders of Vermont) lean their way, as they are expected to do.

      I guess the Senate is 51-49 for the Democrats, factoring in the two independents.

      The next two years will be tricky. Let’s invoke the probably forlorn hope that the people sent to D.C. will be able to act like statesmen instead of politicians.

      Fat chance.

      My guess is that Pelosi won’t want to start off her reign by putting herself too much out of the “mainstream.” The oratory will probably diminish. Hope so, anyway.

      Let’s see how serious they truly are about bringing “civility” and “bipartisianship” to Washington. (Hope I spelled those big words right!)

      At least their antics will be heard around the world now. Not just on Scared Monkeys and talk shows like Rush, Hannity, Drudge, etc.
