Looks like Virginia has finally gone to the Democrats

excerpt:
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Democrats will control both the House and Senate after Jim Webb won a Senate seat by about 7,200 votes in Virginia, The Associated Press reported Wednesday.

Webb will have a formal press conference Thursday morning to officially declare victory, an aide said.

However, a source close to Sen. George Allen says the Republican incumbent wants to make clear he "has no intention of dragging this out."

A victory by Webb, a former secretary of the Navy, would give Democrats a 51-49 seat advantage.

Looks like Allen is finally going to concede according to the CNN website.

What was the margin? About 6000 votes? How many Virginians do you think might have voted for Allen but were put off by the remark? Maybe about 6000?

I just love the idea that he may have single-handedly given the Senate to the Democrats when he said that.

I am praying that this guy comes through, for his sake and the damn USA. Supposedly the surgery went well and even though he was not speaking, he was able to understand people etc. He can still serve if cognitively together enough and with reasonable accomodations for someone with a disability. He ain't goin nowhere yet.

"Liberals cling to power and force crippled Senator to serve; Judgement could be questionable"

Just prop him in a corner until such time as there's a clear majority. On life support if necessary. He can be the dems Terry Schiavo.
