In what looks like close to a sweep, Right wing, anti-woman, anti middle class candidates have been defeated. 

Some of the people who won show promise of being more progressive than the incumbents they've replaced. 

The results are not all in. Please add your comments to fill in the details of what could be wins. 

Note I'm not celebrating Obama's win, but rather the defeat of the worst of the two evils. 

I'm not celebrating the Democratic wins. I'm celebrating the signs that the american voter are not totally decerebrate-- that they made the right call on some of the worst candidates. This means the Democrats will definitely hold their senate majority and, since the night is still young, may pick up a seat or two. 



I am thrilled that Elizabeth Warren has won her race. She's still a solid potential candidate for president in 2016.

It looks like the GOP will continue to hold the house. My guess is that if they continue to do nothing and lock up all progress, they will be fired in a massive bloodbath in 2014. That will give Obama the house and the Senate. Then, we'll see what he's really made of. 

It would be very nice to see him replace Holder with NY's Eric Schneiderman. It would be nice to see Obama start to appoint populist members of his inner circle instead of corporatists and banksters. 

We'll see. Hope is cheap, especially tonight. But it is tempered by reality and so far, the reality has not been kind to hope for Obama. 

Congratulations to all who were terrified of a Romney victory. Your fears are now allayed. Now, you must fully open your eyes and fear Obama and the policies of George W. Bush that he's maintained. 

f*ck you-- Sheldon Adelson, the Koch brothers and all the other right wing billionaires who spent spare pocket change from your billions to try to corrupt the elections. I'm sure you've bought some members of congress. You've probably got some hooks into Obama too. But  your big game plan was foiled. We are coming for every one of you mofos. We will end your ability to use  your wealth to corrupt American politics. Your days are numbered.
