Take credit for all the moderate Democrats’ wins :

But the wave of Democratic victory that is happening across the country would not be happening if the Lamont campaign did not step forward and change the narrative for Democrats.  Despite the fact that Harry Reid, Chuck Schumer and Bill and Hillary Clinton planted a big, fat knife in Lamont’s back and sneered at Democratic voters, the the blue victories that are happening are a direct result of this battle.  The genie came out of the bottle and they could not put it back in.

I think Mark Steyn sums it up well:  this was a normal 6th year election, not a paradigm shift.  narrow margins in both houses of Congress, and we’re back to divided government.  I think the left’s pickups were basically due to disenchantment with Bush and the state of the war in Iraq.  In retrospect, isn’t it fair to say that Bush’s reelection and the Congressional results in ‘04 were basically a message to him?  Get Iraq right, you’ve got two years or else.And he hasn’t got Iraq right, so the “or else” arrived as threatened.Indeed, as others politically more savvy than I have pointed out, lots of the Blue pickups in the House were accomplished by blue-dog Dems.Even if, as now appears, the Senate stays Red, Bush is gonna have a tough time getting support for a better war policy.  But Santorum left him the words and the methods with which he could do it.  If he’s up to it.

That’s the guess of how high the House loss will go from someone watching it closely I was just talking to. Could hit 30 if Pombo and Doolittle lose.

Missouri

Based on exit polls – looks like Amendment 2 failed in MO  Republicans voted no – Dems and Independents voted Yes.  Catholics split 50-50 – most religious voted no.  evangelicals/born agains voted No.
