  1. Will be interesting to see how this congress pans out as it pertains to liberal and conservative agendas. I tend to think this congress will be more conservative when it comes to hot topic issues. I am unsure if the Democrats really won. Seem to be some Republicans in Democratic sheeps clothing. Tim will tell.

  2. When speaking of the Senate, I think Webb certainly has a more conservative mentality than, lets say, Kennedy or even Clinton. Tester out of Montana is a Pro-life Democrat. So abortion issues(stem cell), gun issues; any issues that contrast Democrats from Republicans may be slightly skewed towards advantage to the Rebublican block in the Senate.
