'Long overdue'

As a progressive, I congratulate the Democrats for their success in capturing control of the House and the Senate. Of course, I would be remiss if I forgot to mention many others who are obviously elated over the Democrats' success.

They include peace activists, women and minorities, innocent Iraqi civilians, the Pentagon, our fair and diplomatic allies around the world, the U.N., anyone who dares speak her/his mind, all of my college professors (Marxist or otherwise), the 50 million people of our nation without health insurance, and minimum wage earners.

And thank God there is finally a woman in charge of the House. It's long overdue.
