The morning after....

Last night, on the way home, I listened to 680AM in order to hear what was happening in the election counts.  It was mostly local races, so I didn't gain much info on the national forcast.

Once I got home, I switched on Fox News.  At the time I turned it on, the Dems needed 3 seats in the Senate to gain control of that house, 11 seats in the House of Reps to get that one.

I took a break from it, ended up falling asleep, and then waking up at about 11:30.  I went into the living room to turn off the tv.  I got there just in time to see the "Balance of Power" meter going from "Democrats need one seat in the House of Reps" to a big banner saying, "Democrats have gained control of the House of Representatives".  They still needed 3 seats in the Senate.

So this morning, it looks like they only need 2 seats in the Senate, with Montana and Virginia too close to call.  I *believe* the Dem candidate in both states have a small lead, and know that there will be a recount in Virginia at least.

A ban on same-sex marriage in Arizona was shot down, as was the ban on abortion in North Dakota. 

Oh, and as of this morning, Hamas has called Muslims to declare war on America .

Here's hoping for a better 2008....
