And Say Hello To Majority Leader Clinton???

McCaskill is declaring victory... Talent is conceding.

Montana is looking very, very good.

Webb declared victory a while ago. Allen has NOT conceded. Webb appears to have increased his lead to just over 11,000 votes, which (if it holds) means there will be no automatic recount (paid for by the state). If Allen wants it, he will have to pay for it. (I assume he'll want it.)

Unless something changes in Montana, which is looking very, very good, control of the Senate will hinge on the outcome of the Virginia recount.

Is this really happening?

And if it is, what about this scuttlebut that's been floating around for months: that Harry Reid would be willing to step aside and let *Hillary* ascend to the position of Majority Leader... *If* she affirms that she will not run for President in 2008.

A woman Speaker... and a woman Majority Leader? We could do worse.

Montana ftw. Dems got it.

Believe it or not, Hillary would have a lot more influence as Majority Leader than Harry Reid. She's an idiot if she doesn't jump on it. She won't win a presidential campaign because the GOP will rip her to shreds in any possible way they can, manufactured or truth.

I don't agree with the conventional wisdom on Hillary -- Whether it's in 08 or 12 or 16, she will eventually run... and when she does, I think she will win.

I *do* think that, unless it's mythical, she should take the deal.
