I say NH Democrat, slightly over IA Dem and PA Dem (if Gerlach had lost, then I might vote PA Dem)

I would broaden it out a bit and say it was the year of the Northeastern Democrat. I wasn't so much localized in a certain state or states as it was in a region - the NE.

I'm still going out on a limb here and predicting that Tom Vilsack will eventually become the Dem nominee. 

The others--Edwards, Hillary, and Obama, have peaked WAY too early

THE BUCKS ARE GOING TO THE FINAL FOUR!!!

Well, it was definitely not the year of the moderate Republican - they basically don't exist any more in Congress.

New Hampshire, easily. Just four years ago  this was a Republican one party state, 100% Republican Congress delegation, Republican presidential vote, Republican Governor and heavily Republican State Legislature. Look at it now. A very dramatic transformation, especially the legislature this time. They lost what, 80 seats? And both House Reps too. If any state experienced a true wave this year, it was NH.

YOU FORGOT NEW YORK!!!!!!!!

It was the year of the New York Democrat.

Aaron is pissed:

She was like "How did you get my number?  I don't handle this issue.  You have to call the South Bryant Campus for that.  I'll transfer you, but I don't handle it."  She said it in a slightly condescending tone.  I didn't tell her that Grumps gave me the number.  I just told her I looked it up.

Not really. New York held up better than expected for the GOP. I actually consider it to be a bit of a victory for them, considering the premises.

That's why I didn't put it on there.  If they had picked up a couple more house seats, then yes.

Correct conan!  Most of the gains were in the Northeast and Middle West, not the South.

So are you saying the only new conservative Dems elected were Donnelly, Ellsworth, Hill, and Shuler? I don't know that much about three of them, but Hill seemed to have had a moderate record in Congress.

Anyway, I voted New Hampshire.

So you're claiming that a lot of Democcrats are conservatives. Then who needs the Republican party? Gotcha.

Lampson is a moderate, Carney will have to vote like one to be re-elected, Ellsworth and Shuler are Blue-Dogs, Donnelly is moderate, Hill is moderate, Altmire is moderate. Casey will be a pro-life vote in the Senate. Add to that the Blue-Dogs and moderates already in the House Caucus, and yes, the Democratic majority is built on 30-40 odd moderate to conservative Democrats from mainly Bush/swing states.

On the GOP side, for 2016, look out for Gov. Phill Kline (KS), Gov. Ralph Reed (GA), Gov. JD Hayworth (AZ), Sen. David Vitter (LA), among others.

No, I compiled a list here: http://uselectionatlas.org/FORUM/index.php?topic=48771.msg1041665#msg1041665
Hill turns out to be moderate.
