Republicans scored big last night, even though there were some disappointments (notably Harry Reid winning reelection in Nevada). In California, it looks like the Democrats are truly going to own the coming state collapse. And it appears that my own congress-weasel, Gerald Connelly, will hang on to his razor-thin margin of victory.
On the other hand, at least two black Republicans - Allen west in Florida and Tim Scott in South Carolina - have won, Marco Rubio not only won, but is obviously headed for a promising career at the national level, and Republicans recaptured numerous state houses and governorships. There is a new generation of future Republican stars, while the Democrats clearly suffer from what you might call a fertility decline in the creation of exciting candidates of potential national prominence.
All in all, a good night - but it's still the merest start.
