…considering how well the elections appear to have gone last night. Democrats back in control of the House and quite possibly the Senate depending on how the final tallies in Montana and Virginia turn out. Dick DeVos’s bid for Michigan Governor has failed and the Michigan House is under Democratic control as well. Disappointed that Proposal 2 here in Michigan, which puts restrictions on Affirmative Action, managed to pass, but very happy to see that the amendment to the state constitution limiting the use of Eminent Domain succeeded by a wide margin. Bummed that Joe Liberman managed to get reelected, but delighted as I can be that Rick Santorum is out. Lastly Democrats manage to gain the majority of Governor jobs in the country.
So not a perfect night, but still worth being quite pleased this morning. And if the Dem’s manage to win the Montana and Vermont races it’ll just be that much sweeter by the end.
Update: Edited to change “Vermont” to “Virginia” seeing as I got them confused earlier.
