Well, it looks like the Democrats will be taking both the House and the Senate! This is probably the best news I’ve heard in a long time – not due to any great virtues of the Democrats, but rather because their level of corruption is a few notches below the Republicans. (So in other words, only “quite corrupt”). I’m looking forward to seeing if Nancy Pelosi will introduce some actual oversight to assess the damage caused by six years of ignorance, fear-mongering and congressional rubber-stamping.

Just maybe, the US can move out of its traditional role and work toward becoming a source of stability in the world.

But I’m not holding my breath.
