Hoping and praying that the Democrat gets at least majority in either the house or the Senate.

And hope Sebelius doesn't lose to the Republican in the Kansas Governor race... :-o

His daughter was crying and he gave a very humbling concession to Casey; but Chris Matthews made a great point... there are a lot of daughters crying in this country because they lost their fathers in Iraq. This vote is, in many ways about the war, and no matter how you feel about it, the American public is speaking clearly through the Democratic process.

The Democrats are projected to win the House by a safe margin; they still may possibly win the Senate.

yea this vote is purely about peoples feelings towards bush/war. whitehouse won the senate seat in rhode island vs a republican incubant who voted against george bush in the last election. the incumbant, chaffee, was strongly opposed to everything george bush, but the R next to his name sunk him, like it's sinking republicans across the board.

I saw that and I agree that Chafee lost almost entirely because of the negative sentiment toward Bush and Iraq and not because of his personal merit. He stood up to his party and now he's lost, not so much because of it, but despite it. The turnout for democrats has been very high though in an effort to flip Congress, just as the republicans did 12 years ago.

Politics is cyclical, just the nature of things.

i just saw a poll saying chaffee had a 62% approval rating in his state and still lost. that's amazing. i cant see how the GOP gets any of the big three senate seats.
