    O'donnell winning in Delaware has one extreme cost for the GOP. Assuming she loses the general (most likely),that will pretty much stick a nail in the GOP's chances of taking the senate. While hard core cons love getting rid of a so called Rino at least Castle would have voted with the GOP when it comes to committee chairmanship's. Coons wont.

    So while the tea party may have got rid of a Rino,they have cost themselves in the long run.....

    Maybe she will,maybe she won't. She raised a million bucks today so there is definitely support, will that translate into enough votes....hell if I know.

    So if your predictions come to pass, and the dems stay in control, then the next two years will be the same as the past two years?? Oh yeah, then Obama would be a shoe-in for '12.:lol:

    The tea parties are doing what they should:

    Tea Party?s already won - TheHill.com

    There are more messages to the GOP from the tea parties than to the Democrats.

    Guess the Dems won't have anyone to blame but themselves then won't they?

    Besides....better to have a few good people then a large pack of scoundrels.

    Considering she's already started closing the gap and it's barely the end of the week, i think your cheers of victory over her are premature.

    Besides, how much control do we really have in the Senate when someone so frequently votes with the other party?

    Not being able to pay seems to be a big problem with everybody.

    Kind of goes against their spread the wealth and punish the rich white man mantra doesn't it?

    I think the Republicans will rally around her, and draw more votes. She does have a chance. Then I am sure that the Republicans are trying to take over the Tea prties. That is part of the problem. The tea parties are not a republican movement. At least that is not the intention. They are a win the country back movement. Not to win back to the republicans, but to the American people who hold conservative principles.

    Less Government, and more people power is the goal. The Republicans are not the Tea Party, and the Tea Party is not the Republicans. Republican pol;iticians need to back off on trying to control or even lead the Tea Parties.

    That would put her in line with this democrat:

    Not Larry Sabato: YOU HAVE WON A NEW CAR!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Now of course you are hypothesizing, while Rick Boucher has already done it.
