a prediction

The Republicans will retain control of both the House and the Senate.

I base this prognostication upon the BBC reports. In 2004, the BBC reporteres were confident that John Kerry would win. Now they are confident that Congress will enter the hands of the Democrats.

As the Whig party found out in the 19th century, a platform which consists of "I am opposed to the party in power" just isn't enough.

I remember hearing somewhere (probably NPR) that polls in Britian are useless, becuase those polled are so annoyed that that the polster has the termerity to ask them what their vote was/would be. Therefore they lie. Inconsistently.

There's a part of me that really likes this.

I love seeing on the news this morning that there were protests or gatherings or marches (not sure what you would call them)in the middle east celebrating Rumsfeld's resignation and praying that the democrats would bring peace.
