2 years ago if you had told me that Virginia would be the deciding factor over whether or not the Dems would have control over the Senate, I would have laughed.

This is crazy.

All we can do is hope. As long as there are nothing but Rep. and Dem. this country is doomed. So what if every couple years the people are so mad at one they decide to go for the other and then act like they won the Kewpie doll the side that was not in control at the time came back and took power. In two more years, they'll hate them and want the other guys back. I goes in cycles. Whomever is in power will be hated, because they are blamed for all the current problems, and whomever is not at the time will be hailed as the conquering heroes come to save us! But in the end, we all lose. Because both parties suck, and have failed us all terribly. Don't be fooled into thinking this is any kind of 'victory.'

It's highly unlikely that Allen will be able to overcome the deficit...but I can understand why he would call for a recount.

Speaking as someone who voted straight Republican ticket except one official write-in independent, I agree. By voting Republican, I was voting for whom I feel is the less "sucky" of the two parties. Evidently, the majority of voting America did not agree with me, and felt that it was time for a change. I think that many would have voted for Pee Wee Herman instead of the Republicans. How bad they must have failed in ordre for that to be true. Idiots started out with a Republican majority and did absolutely nothing. They only have themselves to blame for this loss.

The one consolation I have is that, for the most part, it was moderate and conservative Dems who made the gains, not liberals like Pelosi, Feinstein, and Kennedy (although even "moderate" is too liberal for me).

The biggest disappointment for me during this entire election is that South Dakota had it within their grasp to end the murder of babies in their state and voted it down. That breaks my heart and makes my blood boil at the same time.

Pee Wee Herman is in the White House already.

The Dems have control of the House, may get control of the Senate(though I think the Republicans are going to stay in control), Massachusetts has it's first Democratic governor in 16 years, and Rick Santorum is out of office. It's a good day.

The South Dakota (abortion) and Missouri (stem cell research) amendments were huge wins, wonderful news. Yay!

DSCC has declared victory. Right move. That's what Bush did in 2000, acted like he was the President and pushed forward. Declare victory and don't look back.

This is awesome. First woman Speaker of the House, Dems taking back control... 2008 can't come soon enough.
