webb, allen, and virginia's greens

I'm not registered as a Democrat, but that's how I vote when it counts (especially when it's close). We'd already be making plans for a Democratic Senate if it weren't for 26,000 Virginians who voted for the Green candidate. As Leo put it, "add IRV to the list of reforms i need to see happen if i am to stay in this country."

Not to be too overly optimistic, but today's a great day. Dems take both the House and the Senate. Rumsfield FINALLY steps down. Yeah, yeah - the Terminator's still governor, and some of the propositions I voted for were rejected, but I can live with that.
