Ha!! Yours was the first blog I went to this morning. I'm so happy today!!! I'm happy because this means NO MORE POLITICAL ADS! Seriously, the Republicans got what was coming to them. The Democrats need to learn from their mistakes in the period from the late 70's to the early 90's in that they can't get fat and happy. They have to remember that they can always be voted out (like the GOP) and that bipartisan work isn't just a catchy phrase. That needs to happen or else I predict in 20 years that you'll see the emergence of a third party to prominence.

When I posted that, Should, I was only talking about the fact that Santorum had been ousted. I had no inkling yet that the Democrats would take control of the House and, possibly, even the Senate or that the political candidate I'd been volunteering for would be declared the winner!


Now, based on what an arrogant, yahoo, racist pig he seems to be, George Allen needs to go down. Sounds like it might be many weeks before we know the final makeup of the Senate, though.

This is like Christmas for me!

I agree with you that the Democrats need to stay focused, hard-working and clean or there will be another broom moving through, maybe as early as 2008 which would also impact the presidential election.

Frankly, I don't think a third party would be a bad thing for our democracy. That would force politicians to form coalitions and really work together across party lines.

Thanks for stopping by and for your kind words! I'm so happy I could just spit.

My Democratic choice for 2008? Al Gore, a shoe-in on the "righting past wrongs" vote alone or Barrack Obama because he's a decent man who doesn't seem to be afraid to do or say the right thing. Obama is probably too new to make it next time, though. My worst fear is Hillary because I don't think she has a chance of winning in 2008.

I just found out that incompetent boob, Rummy just got canned....errrrrrrrr....resigned and they're replacing him with Bob Gates, who is the president of Texas A&M University in College Station, where I work. I can now say that I share barbers with the Secretary of Defense.

I couldn't help but listen to Rush Limbaugh on the radio. It feels great to no longer hear that ever present smirk of his fat face. :)

I have to admit, the jury's still out for me on Obama. I don't know enough of that guy and I have to wonder of his experience. Gore won't win. He really annoys me, for some reason, BUT having invented the internet, I guess he does have some credibility. Personally, I'd love to see Lieberman run. I'd vote for him in a heartbeat.

I really like Obama andd think he has a brilliant political future but believe he's too new to make a realistic run for the White House in 2008. I've read his first book and heard him interviewed several times, most memorably on Charlie Rose where he talked about "America's empathy defict," which really resonated with me.

Interesting because I'd be willing to vote for John McCain in a New York minute over Lieberman, who I think is smarmy and wishy-washy. I think Lieberman has betrayed his party and constituents by pandering to the Bushies.

You may be right that Gore won't win, despite the fact that he's done so once already. I don't know who else I'd like to see in the presidential hunt from the Democratic side. Time will tell who comes to the fore.
