Here's a Gain in the Senate for the Dems!
Barack Obama. An up and coming black man running for Senate in Illinois and he's ahead by 16% in the polls. On top of that, his opponent has just given up on blocking the release of court documents concerning and evidently highly unseemly divorce.
Hmm, wonder if any more seats in the Senate are ripe for the picking. One thing you can be sure of, the conservative attack machine is already out there trying to tear down Obama.
There's something to look forward to for the future of progressivism and the Democratic Party, and that something is Obama!
