Dayum, I Am A Good Pundit
Well, Webb apparently won in VA, and the latest tally at dKos shows +6/+29 for the Dems in the Senate and House, which is precisely my prediction. Somebody pay me lots of money to make shit up, please. Sometimes it's even correct.
[A]fter the sting is gone, Bush may begin to understand that the “thumping” was a blessing in disguise—a way for him to yet salvage something of his presidency, both at home and abroad. He began that process by firing Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, the first step toward regaining the initiative on Iraq. And the dividends for Bush of the Democratic victory may keep paying off for the rest of his term—and in the history books.
Newsweekling's Jonathan Alter, ladies and gentlemen. He'll be here all week. Try the veal and please remember to tip your waitstaff generously...

sorry, ntodd, I think Alter has a point. It's gonna be a chance for him to look all statesman-like. And he really may be interested in a legacy vs. throwing red meat to the wingnuts.
And why is it bad if he looks good as a result of the congress getting something done? If the country is better off for it, what's the problem?
Of course, he broke Iraq in the first place, so he really shouldn't get any credit for fixing it.
