10:13 pm CST--CNN just announced the Dems took back the House. Not sure yet about the Senate, that's still an if. Wonder if they've let John Kerry out of his soundproofed padded room yet? We're back to a divided government, more partisan, more deadlocked, and accomplishing less than ever before. Let the investigative hearings begin!! "Wonder how long before impeachment proceedings begin", mused a coworker last night. He seemed excited about it! I have a feeling it's going to be more of a circus sideshow out east than I/we thought possible. At least both parties are going to be more worried about the 2008 Pres election than getting anything done. On a local note, Doyle held on as governor, Kohl as Senator, and Dave Obey as Congressman from D7. From the looks of our announced winners' results, we like our incumbents here. With the Dem majority, Dave Obey becomes Chairman of the Appropriations committee. Guess who'll have a big say in where the $ are spent? The Marriage Amendment passed.
“Marriage. Shall section 13 of article XIII of the constitution be created to provide that only a marriage between one man and one woman shall be valid or recognized as a marriage in this state and that a legal status identical or substantially similar to that of marriage for unmarried individuals shall not be valid or recognized in this state?”The surprising (to me, anyway) result is that the Death Penalty question is so close. It's only an advisory referendum, but I'm surprised the results are as close as they are at this point.
“Should the death penalty be enacted in the State of Wisconsin for cases involving a person who is convicted of first-degree intentional homicide, if the conviction is supported by DNA evidence?”Going to bed now, too pooped out to listen to the rest of the results.
