    •  oh and... (0+ / 0-)

      I really thought the only race that would be a nailbiter was MO. I had bought into the 'momentum' hype of Webb and Tester - should have known they would have been much closer. I had a good feeling that DeWine and Santorum were going to lose big, but it's hard to predict a > 10 point win vs an incumbant (: RI was much closer than I thought it would be...

      Overall, a GREAT night... felt good to be watching some close elections go our way for a change. However, I'm a bit worried that since there were not reports of huge issues with voting, just some localized issues here and there, people will sort of accept the machines the way they are now, setting up for the real issues to surface again in 08.
