For the first time since 1984 we elected a Democratic governor!
And in the Montana legislature, controlled by Republicans since 1995, we have won at least a tie in the Senate and possibly control of the House - with many outstanding races still to close to call.
Oh and, BTW, my county went for Kerry 51.34% to 45.65%
So I have reasons to hope as well as reasons to despair. And I have concrete evidence that my efforts during the campaign have not been in vain. I say to you: neither have yours.
