"Today We Made History..."

"Today we made history, now we make progress."

-Nancy Pelosi
November 7th, 2006

We have real hope once again in America! We voted for talent, and change, and vision. And most of all we voted for TRUTH! Some Republicans voted for Democrats. Some Democrats voted for Republicans. A wonderful sign that the fear mongers, dirty tricksters and those who follow their pride, rather then the best interests of America, can't steal our collective souls. We get to wake up tomorrow in a new America. Now, lets not take it for granted ever again!

With A Little Luck
By Paul McCartney & Wings

With a little luck, we can help it out
We can make this whole damn thing work out
With a little love, we can lay it down
Can't you feel the town exploding?
There is no end to what we can do together
There is no end, there is no end, there is no end
The willow turns it's back in inclement weather
And if he can do it, we can do it, just me and you

And a little luck, we can clear it up
We can bring it in for a landing
With a little luck, we can turn it on
There can be no misunderstanding

There is no end to what we can do together
There is no end, there is no end, there is no end
The willow turns it's back on inclement weather
we can do it, just me and you

With a little push, we could set it off
We can send it rocketing skywards
With a little love, we could shake it up
Don't you feel the comet exploding?

With a little luck, a little luck, a little luck.

Maybe even Hilary Rodham Clinton will take the lead in this Revolution making history. Which leaves the question , who will be the first lady in the white house?

Personally, I am just as worried right now as I was before, if not so. The democrat/republican thing aside, and ignoring right now any mention of HC as president, which is a horrifying, terrifying, mind-numbingly scary thought, I just think this election we did nothing but make it worse for ourselves.

First, you mentioned republicans voting democrat and democrats voting republican. A few circumstances of that occurred, yes, but ... as with Any election when there is an overall dissatisfaction with status fell strongly on party lines, and once again that pendulum swung to the apex...the overwhelming success of the democrats shows that trend, and it is a trend that is verifiable and statistical. people are angry at a president, a senetor, or the state of the nation...which is understandable, justifiable even in cases, but the reaction, instead of delving even deeper into candidate and issue information and make a better decision, is to just start punching ballots for anyone on the opposing party. Some of the people who won office may be good, some may be bad, but i can bet you money marbles or chalk that 3/4 of the poeple that voted for them knew nothing more about them than the (R) or (D) beside their name. So now, we have switched the balance of power in both house and senate. I will be the first to agree that change of some sort is needed, you have seen, over the past year, my growing dissatisfaction with status quo. But do people really think the US government is really now a better place? that instantly we will now have better government? good gods people ... all we have accomplished is now forming a house, senate, and exectuive branch that will spend the next 2 years butting heads and we will accomplish exacctly, absolultely, NOTHING. and at the end of that 2 years, we will once again have a emotion-base, party line election where people vote out their frustrations and angers with impulse, not intent. Solution? i have no clue...but swapping the donkeys and elephants on the "welcome" sign to the white house is not the answer.

AMEN! Great entry!
I just hope that if Hillary ends up running for President, that the democrats don't lose the vote just because of how many people have it out for her. ya know?

I tend to be a little bit skeptical that real change can be had by switching those in office, but I'm mostly happy about the results of the election. It certainly appears to have gotten President Bush's attention! I hope he figures out a way to get us out of Iraq soon, as I suspect that many people were voting as much against the war as they were for the individuals who won.
