2PP020 – 5 November 2009

2pp_album_art_110x1101.jpgToday we look at some of the results of the US elections. It was no referendum on President Obama or the Democrats, but there was a bit of a one against extremists who were trying to purge the Republican Party of moderates. We also take a look at the referenda in Maine, along with the implications of the much more positive results from Kalamazoo, Michigan and Washington state. We also talk about some of the bigger issues and trends, and that even the loss in Maine is as dire as it may seem to some—though Arthur thinks there are some threats arising from it.

    John McHugh, former Congressman of NY-23, is Secretary of the Army, not the Navy: http://www.army.mil/leaders/sa/ The nomination, BTW, was held hostage, along with other nominees for months by Senate Republicans. Not positive, but it may have gotten caught up in the fussing over Sotomayor.

    And as I say as often as possible, NY-23 was a PERFECT example where Instant Runoff Voting would have served the district best: http://blog.timesunion.com/rogergreen/i-wish-there-was-instant-runoff-voting-in-ny-23/671/
