Go Ladies!
Say hello to the first female Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi.
Hi, Nancy!


Say goodbye to South Dakota's Referendum 6- their complete ban on abortion. The measure failed by 12% points. Say goodbye to Oregon's Parental Notification--the measure lost by the same numbers.

My only disapointment (because no matter how the Senate recounts come back, the dem's have really won) is the electorate's treatment of the gay marriage iniatives. The bans passed in South Dakota, South Carolina, Wisconsin, Virginia, and Idaho. The fight continues....

Overall, a very good night. VERY GOOD. Democrats took the House with a larger majority than Republicans ever had during their 1994-2006 "revolution." We also won more Senate campaigns in a single cycle than either party has won since at least 1980 (source). And the next time any Republican says that bullsh*t about this being par for the course for a President's 6th year, just remind them about President Clinton's 1998 mid term elections where the Dem's picked UP seats despite the impeachment controversy.
