it's all about blue

So the Democrats won control of the House at least. Hopefully they can use their new clout not to dwell on the past and further mudslinging, but to address important issues for the future (say, 9/11 Commission recommendations, minimum wage, student loan interest rates, and Medicare drug price negotiations, to name a few). Pelosi has already ruled out impeachment murmurs and subpoena abuse and seems to understand that any bold legislation is still subject to the veto.

An Arizona ballot measure was rejected that would have offered a lottery-like cash incentive to vote. Opponents feared it would bring people to the polls for all the wrong reasons, but really, who wouldn't want a chance at a million dollars? Especially since the chances of winning this lottery would've been higher than the regular one!
