So will assuming congress is split between two different parties, how effective will it be in passing legislation since this past congress has been criticized as a do nothing congress even though one party controlled both houses?

For instance, here in Canada, some of our most effective Parliaments have come from minority governments, not all the time but sometimes.

Plus Bush has the veto. So will this just be much ado about nothing?

I know. An unlikely addition, though, might be Montana. Their exit polls and current data shows that they might oust their incumbent Republican senator.

We will probably have gridlock. In fact, Wall Street is praying for just that.

I'm not too confident about the senate either but we're going to have the house decisively. One thing that's really cool is New Hampshire - 1 was supposed to be safe for the repubs and 2 was a cointoss - but we've got 2 in the bag and 1 is very, very close.

This was actually more sure earlier in the week, and pretty clearly a dem seat, though the polls of late have tightened.
Go Tester cut!



Anybody else enjoying that this thread has turned into a Democratic splooge-fest?

I should also mention that the death penalty vote is a referendum, so the legislature would have to decide whether to reinstate the death penalty or not.

Also, a fact I just heard on the news, the death penalty was abolished in Wisconsin in the mid 1800s...

The Republican Florida Governor elect just used WTSHNN as his "I win" music.

Ugh. I bet the leg will keep it from passing. I hope. I have no idea - thoughts?
