Wow unbelievable week in US Politics. What a monumental shift in power. First the Senate and the House go back to the Democrats. Rummy is forced to resign. We get our first Afro-American Muslim elected to the House, along with our first Madam Speaker.

Hopefully this is only the tip of the iceberg for the demise of the misguided Bush administration and what is to be a trend in American politics with the elevation of people of color and women to positions of power. It's long over due. A nice first step in fixing a big big mess.

This midterm might just work out perfectly for the Republicans. We are now in the autumn of W's reign and just as we start to actualy feel the effects of his policies (economic & foreign), he and his party (along with Corporate Media) now have the Dems to blame for every thing from now till '08. Then they will try to work it in order to get someone like Giuliani in the White House. I can hear it now... He's "The Hero of 9/11"

Of all the "firsts" you mentioned, I can't believe you forgot the first Socialist senator in US history. The Guardian is even excited about this.
