AMERICA HAS SPOKEN
(below is an editorial by me)
*
The vote counting is done (except in a couple of states) and the Democrats are in control of the House for the first time in 12-plus years. The Senate appears headed for even-steven. What does this mean? President Bush will not be able to push his agenda through the House. His proposals will be voted down. The bills the House approves will be vetoed by the President and the Democrats will not be able to gather a two-thirds majority to override the veto. That means gridlock in D.C. Nothing will happen unless the groups can work together. Oh, yeah, the American voters have spoken. I wonder if they understand that in D.C. (Okay, the only bill that will be approved will be some $100-billion project that won't work but will make millionaires of a few well-connected folks. Cynical, ain't I?)

Very astute observation and no, no one in D.C. will have a clue why things aren't getting done. Actually, they will: the other party.

Hi Howard:

To quote Will Rogers (he is still current): "This country has come to feel the same when Congress is in session as when the baby gets hold of a hammer."

Also:

"I'm not a member of an organized party. I'm a Democrat."
