    Actually, this is the best way it could turn out for the Republican Party. If Hoffman had won a squeaker in a district that has been traditionally a strong Republican district, the Conservatives would have seen that as a mandate. And, in 2010, thown a bunch of seats to the Democrats in districts with a much less strong Republican background.

    For someone who entered the race less than a month ago, a virtual un-know with no money, still quite a showing. Did you happen to see what happened to Corzine in New Jersey, after Obama spent all weekend campaigning for him. Did you also see McDonald win by a landslide in Virginia. Oh no you would not want to talk about that now would you. Many republican wins all over the place, bad night for dems, good one for repubs.:lol::lol::lol::lol::lol: Guess what's coming your way in 2010. Major loses for your party.

    But if you look at the reactions of people like Sinatra, so called "Conservatives" will try anyways. They see this as a victory. :lol:

    Irrelevant, he raised more than enough money and endorsements thanks to the Republicans.

    :lol::lol: Nice try--but you're talking about "small potatoes" compared to actually what happened tonight. Hoffman came in very late--an unknown--& what's amazing is he came SO CLOSE. To add about 6800 idiots in this district did not know that Dede dropped out over the weekend & voted for her--which would have put Hoffman as the winner in this race. This AFTER this Republican district really screwed up & put up Dede for their candidate--basically a liberal female democrat with an R behind her name. I doubt the republican party will make that same MISTAKE twice--:lol::lol:

    The first shot across the bough was taken tonight & it went right over the U.S. democrat controlled congress, The U.S democrat controlled senate & of course the democrat controlled White House.:clap2::clap2:

    President Obama has lost his charm with the voters of New Jersey. He was out there 5 times including most of this weekend trying to drag Governor Corzine over the finish line. This along with Corzine throwing 30 MILLION dollars of his own money at his re-election campaign. New Jersey is obviously very bad news for democrats in 2010. New Jersey being the bluest of blue states has just done a 180 degree turn to conservatism. Independents in this state overwhelmingly voted for Governor elect Criss Christie.

    Virginia--voted for Obama overwhemling by 15 points. Republican McDonnell just gave Gov. Deeds a 20 point thrashing & a pink slip. Meaning what went to democrats in 2008 for a 15 point advantage just went back to Republicans for a 25 advantage. Huge change.

    The Tsunami has started on the east coast-& it is going to continue to roll through this country through 2010-in which liberal democrats have no shot what-so-ever of retaining their seats.

    I doubt that President Obama & Nancy Pelosi will be making fun of tea partiers anymore. This country is mad as hell & even democrats who voted for them are not going to take it anymore. Tonight was overwhelming evidence of that.

    The Democrats haven't won that specific district area since 1890 or something along the lines of that.

    Notice after 1890 it was redistricted.
