Well! I'm not too pleased with California (can't stand Gov. Gray, didn't want to spend all that money for all those programs) but the rest of the country is making me feel a lot better. Apart from Lautenburg and Pile-of-Dung Harkin, all the Dems I wanted defeated were. And Oregon had the sense to vote against their "free" universal health care. How did Wyoming end up with a Democrat for Governor??
If only Minnesota and South Dakota do the right thing... Chaffee can whistle, it won't help. Yay.

END OF THE CLINTON ERA [Jim Robbins]
Remember a few months back when the buzz was about all the Clinton Administration alumni who were seeking office, how we were going to see some kind of referendum on the Clinton years in the wake of the "stolen" election? Reno and Reich never made it to the general election. Bowles lost. Richardson won, but he was a congressman before his service to Clinton, so he wasn't particularly beholdent. A few other lower level Clinton admin. has-beens also lost. Yet Jeb Bush won handily, as did Catherine Harris, and the generally pro-GOP drift of the evening speaks for itself. Just wanted to do a little reality check on that "Clinton wing resurgent" thesis. And there is of course Clinton's hand picked DNC chief Terry McAuliffe, whom I hope will continue in his job for years to come.
He didn't mention how well Lindsey Graham did...
