Buh-bye Rummy! Hello Majority Leader Reid!

There were quite a few changes yesterday and even more today. With the win of both the House and the Senate (there are apparently rumours that Allen won't go for a recount in Virginia) we can now look forward to Speaker Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Reid. California and Nevada have never been this influential in Congress. With this win we also got rid of some incredibly insulting people like Rick Santorum and George Allen and today we got the Rummy resignation!

I'm still a little tired from last night. I went to bed at 8am CET and got up five hours later. I'll gather my thoughts and write a few more extensive posts both looking back and looking forward.

I'd just like to say to all Tahoe candidates whether they won or lost last night that they ran very spirited and inspiring campaigns, especially Jack Carter, Jill Derby, Charlie Brown and Rob Haswell. Let's hope they'll run again in the future!
