For the record, I think it is ridiculous that it now takes 60 Senators to pass anything.

MSNBC finally gave up on Iowa. They are still hoping for North Carolina according to Chris Matthews. Right now he's totally stressing over the Maryland governor's race.

It was based on exit polling AND the whole fact that Hawaii sways much more towards the Democrats than Republican. It was a race that Republicans didn't expect to win.
