[The Life of Shaun #79] And we have it...

...finally!  Obviously I'm joyed.  An election day that doesn't leave me in tears of desperation.  Could it be?  Could it be things will start to get better?  Well, Rumsfeld and Santorum are gone, so that's two giant YESES right there.

But, no, I am not ignorant or overoptimistic about the situation.  Bush still has the veto pen, and the Democrats have had such a special knack at incompetence for years, so there's no guarantee.  What's done and dusted, though, is that Bush no longer has a rubber stamp, and that's brilliant.  All I can hope is that this will be a catalyst to break the Democrats out of their paralysis.

First up, raising the minimum wage -- will Bush be willing to veto that now that he no longer has complacent underlings to do it for him in Congress?

Doing a happy dance,
Shaun
