While I make no secret of my personal political leanings, I also don't write about them that often. This is a marketing & communications blog, not a personal political pulpit.
But today, I just gotta say: YAY!!
As of 7 pm this evening, the NY Times election results show a gain of 5 seats in the Senate for the Democrats (including affiliated folks like Bernie Sanders and Joe Lieberman), with one contest (Virginia) still undecided. Last I looked, that race was led by the Democrat, but there's bound to be an official recount. Either way, next year, the Senate is either split 50/50 or the Dems have a 1-seat majority.
And the news is even better in the House and nationwide governor's races. If you are a Democrat that is :-)
House: solid Democratic majority, with Nancy Pelosi likely to be Speaker.
Governors: Six states, including Massachusetts, my state, switched from a GOP to a Democratic governor. 28 states to be led by Dems, 22 by GOP (a complete flip from the previous numbers).
And the day ended with Donald Rumsfeld's resignation.
It is going to be a different world come January, and it's about time.
Tomorrow back to our regularly scheduled marketing topics.
