  •  If Sink had won (0+ / 0-)

    she would have won by a similar margin, and we would have said she had a mandate.

    I hate to give a false equivalence here, bu everyone claims they have a mandate if they win. It's just what winners do.

    People panic too much on this site.

      Look what she would have been faced with regarding the supermajorities in both houses:  11 Democratic senate seats out of 40 - 28% & 39 Democratic house seats out of 120 - 33%.  There would be no illusions about a "mandate" there.  Scott OTOH can act like he has a mandate, no matter if he won by a 1/2 million votes or one vote with those majorities.  We've got a long way to go and a fight on our hands down here.  With the current characters in charge there will be a lot of blood lost in the coming battles in way of baragaining rights and others to numerous to mention here.
