Mid Term Elections - the Outcome

Nancy Pelosi

(click here for the Romanian version)

Dems control now the House. Nancy Pelosi is the incoming speaker. As for the Senate, Dems have now 51 seats (including 2 independents), GOP have 49 seats.

Rumsfeld resigned. Robert Gates (a former CIA director) is the new czar at the Pentagon. The war in Iraq was the main theme of the elections.

So, the trend is toward Dems, isn't it? Of course, only we should note something important: most of the Dems who gained are actually conservatives (either social or fiscal); most of the GOP folks who lost were moderates. The remaining Republicans, in both the House and the Senate, are conservatives.

So, what is the trend actually in America? Is it not rather toward conservatives (either Dems or GOP)?
