54% to 45%

Hmmm...that's about the same as another election a year ago, isn't it?

So, can we start calling the vote for US Senator Brown (R-MASS) a mandate?

The once-improbable Democratic candidate has ridden the twin themes of “hope” and “change” into the White House, and that, combined with his juggernaut of a campaign operation fueled by unprecedented fundraising, has helped his party extend its advantages in Congress to the point where there is a real possibility of sweeping changes in the country’s direction. The sheer size of the victory would be mandate enough, but Obama’s is a promise of fundamental, radical change, not incremental adjustments, giving even more impetus to his agenda.

Now, with an election victory the size of which has been unseen in presidential election in decades, this young President-elect has the expectations of that lineage to fulfill.

BUT...This and the other elections that 0bama lost for the Dems this year aren't in any way a backlash against the arrogance of two thirds of the Federal government.

  1. Rachel Maddow says Brown won because all of us unwashed masses "didn't really know what we were voting for." BS-MA knew what they were voting for and they definitely knew what they were voting against!
