    Hopefully the landslide continues. The last thing we need is a Senate with dem's in total contral.

    Not sure if it matters to the Dem's, might be better for them picture wise if he Martin looses. There are enough moderate conservatives currently in the Senate that the Dem's have no reason to need 60 seats. This is all just semantics at this point. I also suspect Obama is going to have more resistance from the left than he will from the right. He appears to have assembled a centralist administration which is the best the conservatives can hope for during a democratic administration.

    Also, GA is deep south and it doesn't appear the Obama supporters bothered to vote so I don't think Chambliss will have much trouble keeping his seat in the deep red state of GA. If he does, it says the GOP is in worse shape than first thought.

    There is nothing centrist about his admin. Their UN agenda is as extreme as one can get.

    It's like being beaten 42-0 late in a football game and then scoring a touchdown in the final minute to lose by "only" 42-7, but congrats to the Republicans for holding onto the Georgia U.S. Senate seat. :)

    I THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!

    Like I've been telling Ya'll the Blacks here at least voted for Obama because he's Black. Martin didn't have all those Votes today cause they didn't care he wasn't making HISTORY!!

    Yes, your right. Unfortunately in this case the team that is getting the snot kicked out of them is the American people that are not looking for handouts. ( the Americans that made this country great)

    You have a narrow view of the Black race. You think any of them shared the liberal philosophy and voted Democratic because they were democrats? Any chance any of them believed his campaign of change and voted because they felt he was the best man for the office?

    Did you mean to same SOME blacks voted that way or did you really want to say ALL blacks voted for Obama just because he's black?
