Opportunities In The Senate

The backlash of Wonderboy's election's effect on the Democrats in Congress is already becoming apparent.

Whereas the liberals currently can muster 60 votes among their party, plus renegade, vocally-independent but still dyed-in-the-wool liberal Joe Lieberman, it's looking like those days are already numbered.

Dodd's and Dornigan's "retirements" are effectively resignations to avoid defeat. Add the Massachusetts seat vacated by the finally dead Teddy Kennedy- brainless long before his actual passing- and that of the appointed Colorado Democrat, and you already go from 60-40 to 56-44.

If Boxer goes down in California, and Harry Reid in Nevada, as expected, you move to 54-46.

Now, that's change you can believe in!
