Dems lose Kennedy seat.
It isn't official yet but it looks like Republican Brown will win the seat that has been an easy Democrat seat for fifty or so years. While this is a special election I think that it points to the serious dismay that even Democrats have with the President and the democratic congress. I think if we project this ahead to the midterm elections the Democrats will certainly lose their majority and their power, which I am happy to have happen. I believe it would be much more prosperous for our nation to have each party in control of either the legislative or the executive not one in control of both. Who knows if the Republicans take over maybe just maybe they could help Obama salvage his less than stellar Presidency like they did Clinton's.
One negative I see happening from this is that the Dems will force health care because they know this is their last chance for a long time to get it done, because a vast majority of people do not want it.
