This was the McCain I could have voted for. But he seemed to disappear as I was making my final decision.

The Dems didn't get their 60 majority in the Senate? I really hope that you are correct about that because I love checks and balances.

McCain's a good man. I hope his political career continues to do well. Idiots changed him for the sake of making him "electable". What a shame.

Class always wins over. And President Obama shines in this category! I am finally proud to be an American. I was ashamed over the last 8 years that I was in any way, shape or form connected to George W. Bush!

True, very true. Wait until we all see how Obama changes during his reign.

The Senate does not have a Republican majority. The Democrats have a simple majority, but they do not have a "super" majority, yet, that will allow them to stop filibusters.

There are a number of moderate Republicans that will side with the Dems on a lot of issues though.

Four seats not yet won/lost, Dems could still get the 'super' majority.
