Well Done, America

It now looks as if the Democrats have taken the Senate and the House. If confirmed, this means they can now stop Bush’s attempt to poison the US judiciary with right wingers.
That’s always been my biggest fear for America under Bush – that his appalling policies could have a life beyond his tenure through the courts.
Of course, what could be embarassing for us British is that America now starts to adopt a sensible policy on Iraq whilst our own dear Tony clings to the idiotic idea that we’re actually doing some good over there.
The other risk is that the Democrats completely screw up now they have some measure of power. Hopefully they’ll resist the (understandable) temptation to turn the next two years into a drawn out attempt at revenge, and try to reverse the grosser excesses of Bush’s reign. Time will tell.
