"It is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself."
Chris Casey neatly sums up with two WaPo editorial cartoons the last couple weeks for Democrats. From this:
With George Allen about to concede, the macro election (a few races are still in recounts around the country): the House and the Senate are again Democratic majorities.
Nice cartoon. We've been so used to losing... Looking forward to the new beginnings - new Senate, new House, new Defense Secretary, new NAE President :)
Driving back from D.C., I heard Senator Allan's concession speech on CNN. Quite gracious. So now it's official, the Democrats control Congress. Let's see what they do with that.
