RumsfeldThe Dems have taken the lead, for better or worse – but most likely better. Most candidates I voted for didn’t win, but my opinion was voiced.

With the changing of the guard in the two houses, will there be a difference? That is too soon to tell, but some grand thigs are already taking place. Let’s start with much more qualified staffing in the White House. While it would be a grave mistake to leave Iraq immediately (which is unlikely to happen), perhaps we will start to see progress from this unneccessary conflict.

In the meantime we can now be assured that GW will be watched a little more closely, since power is now a little more balanced.
