“Brokeback Mountain” may not have won the Oscar for last year’s best movie, but it may have softened up some of the tough-guy crowd in Montana.
It’s official. Jon Tester has de-listed Conrad Burns from the Senate roster as of January 2007.
Now the Senate stands at 49 Republicans and 50 Democrats (or Senators caucusing with them).
One more race to go. If Jim Webb pulls out the race in Virginia, Dems really have scored a whopping victory — and maybe more victory than was really desired as folks now look towards 2008.
I will have a post soon on what I hope Senator Harry Reid does next if he too gets one of the key helms of national government under his direction.
