There is unity now that Coleman's out.

LOL wishful thinking. Swings come, swings go. Unfortunately both parties are run by their loony fringes. This leads to a danger of over-reaching... and future swings, the other way. In 1988 and 1994 the media wrote of the Democrats. In 1992 they wrote off the GOP.

I heard this morning something like "Democratic congress is anxious to work with Obama but is going to put their own spin on the stimulus"

lets put that in English and shorter.

ITS EARMARK TIME!

"bridges to nowhere" for all Democrats and quite the possibility of over-reaching.

I don't think that will happen but there is sure to be lots of excitement.

Rifts show as Obama urges quick action on stimulus.

Democrats such as Budget Committee Chairman Kent Conrad complained openly that many of the incoming administration's proposed tax cuts wouldn't work.

Conrad, D-N.D., and Sen. Judd Gregg, R-N.H., also staked a firm position against using the economic recovery plan for permanent spending increases, opening a split with House Democrats hoping to use the plan to broaden eligibility for unemployment insurance and boost education spending.

LOL, if this was a monarchy, would this era be known as the reign of King Barack the Wonderful? (The time following the dark ages under King George the Blunderful).

Why would they keep Coleman's phone number in the directory? He is no longer a senator. His term expired. Is Obama's number still in there ? I doubt it. Really, you folks complain just to complain.
