We now have "change" for better or for worse. After last nights elections the votes have been tallied and the results are in. It appears that the Democrats have control of the House and probably (after recounts) control of the Senate. The most likely result of Democratic control of legislature and Republican control of executive will be gridlock, unless the President sells out to Pelosi and crew i.e. Rumsfeld resignation. What was the cause for this change in power? Most pundits believe it to be the war and how it has been executed. The problem in our opinion is most Americans don't take into account how it will be executed in the future with a lame duck president and an opposition congress. This leads us to an article we read in REAL CLEAR POLITICS where the author sees this "change" leading us to abandoning Iraq. The author is Canadian and can not be accused of being a Republican operative.
