no surprise -- but some blogs are commenting on the fact that the Chambliss lead was so big this time. really, i think people turned out to vote for Obama in the first go-round, that's all.

the lead isn't that big; Buckley got over 3% of the vote and most if not all his supporters were going for Chambliss.

of course Democrats got another pretty good shot in 2010 at 60 in Senate, Mel Martinez in Flordia just announced he is retiring. Both Spector and the guy in NH are up for tough re-election in blue states....

Spector's seat is pretty safe especially if Chris Matthews makes a run
There has been rumor of the other bush running for Martinez's seat.He would win easily,he was a very popular governor.Good timing for a 2016 run for the presidency

yeah, but that's assuming Spector wants to run, he is nearly 80 with cancer afterall, not to mention he is despised by the conservatives of his own party......

....Good timing for a 2016 run for the presidency

you'd think after the last two Bush economies the voters will finally be sick of another Bush.....

I once heard the definition of insanity explained thusly...

Throwing the same old solutions at the same old problems and expecting a different result.

The GOP is spinning this win so much they are going out into orbit
This win proves Obama doesn't have a mandate.Nevermind that in Oct this seat was deemed solidly safe and it had to go to a runoff
Poor things,the only thing they can cling to that proves they are not obsolete

W. singlehandedly ruined the Bush political empire. Future Bush's will be lucky to get elected to the local school board.
