and the amendment will be repealed in 10 years. as will most of them.

or, there will be very successful Civil Union options in a majority of states in the not-so-distant future.
Well, let's see the internals on who voted yesterday before we jump to that conclusion. Remember, conventional wisdom was that GOP scandal and Mark Foley might cause evangelicals and other members of "the base" to stay home this election.

As a side note, the bans are not homophobic, they're traditionphilic

Lieberman won't be SecOD, it's former CIA chief Robert Gates.


Senate still 50-49 waiting on VA which will most likely go...I can't believe I'm saying this...Democrat...

Rummy out! Dems in! Hopefully America's dark period is now over.

This seems a little more legit

Besides Bush can't play those games as well anymore...

No. But from what was said just minutes ago on cnn, things look very promising. Their legal analyst, Jeffrey Toobin commented that he has never seen anyone in any election make up a 7,000 vote deficit, not even close. He also added that VA's voting machines are electronic, with no paper trail, so recounting is merely a matter of looking at the numbers that are on the machines, and going over them again. So, unless someone's calculator was badly malfunctioning last night, things sound good.

It's just a matter of time before Webb is the official winner. Nov. 27th is when it will be certified, and Allen can ask for a recount after that. I'm glad my Va. vote for Webb mattered so much in the big picture.
