quote:
(CBS/AP) Democrats wrested control of the Senate from Republicans with an upset victory in Virginia, CBS News estimates, giving the party complete domination of Capitol Hill for the first time since 1994.

Jim Webb's squeaker win over incumbent Senator George Allen gave Democrats their 51st seat in the 100-seat Senate, an astonishing turnabout at the hands of voters unhappy with Republican scandal and unabated violence in Iraq. Allen was the sixth Republican incumbent senator defeated in Tuesday's elections.


Well, "complete domination" is pure hyperbole, but it's good to see the Dems succeed. Maybe it says hopeful things for 2008!
