The media is being extraordinarily circumspect about the Senate results, but I want to say what I think they know. The Senate is going to the Democrats, too. Missouri's called, and the counties in Montana that have yet to report are leaning Democratic. The Burns precincts already reported. And Virginia? Webb's up by just a couple thousand; it will likely go to recount. But it sounds like the absentee votes are leaning Democratic, too.

What will a Democratic Congress do? Let's look at the Corner at National Review, where James S. Robbins sees a lot of real estate opening up at the Pentagon:

My guess is that any high ranking official at DOD who was around in 2003 is going to be spending most of the time getting ready for hearings, investigations, maybe worse...Those on hand for the Iraq invasion are going to be facing non-stop Congressional interrogations. I suppose we'll see an exodus from the Building shortly.

After the celebration, make sure to read "Barack Obama, Inc." in the new Harper's. It doesn't matter which party is in power. If they are not held accountable, they will rot. And despite increased turnout, the brown states still rule.
