And…Now we have the Senate. Barely.

Yes! Allen Conceded.

Republican Sen. George Allen of Virginia conceded defeat Thursday afternoon to Democratic challenger Jim Webb, giving Democrats control of the Senate.

However, Mandrake makes a good point about Lieberman over at Daffodil Lane.
He basically won Conneticut with Republican votes and now he is in the pocket of these thugs. I’m not so sure if I trust that he will caucus with the Democrats. Especially after we totally turned against him (as we should have).

I was listening to yesterday’s Democracy Now! podcast in which they interviewed Ralph Nader. He made an interesting point about the Lieberman Problem:

He’s going to be pretty insufferable. I mean, you know, Joe’s inherent self-righteousness now is ballooning by the hour, and he’s going to view himself as a kingmaker if the swing in the Senate is one seat.

So we’ll see what happens. I really wish we could have gotten Lieberman out of there.
