1. Economy: 2006-7 were the worst, by 2008 GDP growth back up but unemployment above 6%, consumer confidence weak.
2. Iraq: Still there in big numbers, so not great. The big concern being a big drop in recruitment and talk of a draft.
3. War on terror: No domestic attcks, but several smaller ones overseas. No one has a clue what's going on in Afghanistan (as is the case now).
4. Wrong track ahead of right track.

5. House- Dem
6. Senate Rep

7. Frist- Didn't run, Rep. holds seat with Marsha Blackburn (unfortunately)
8. Allen: Lost
9. Santorum: Lost
10. Pataki: Didn't run, Spitzer gains seat
11. Bush: Didn't run
12. Romney: Wins
13. Owens: Won
14. Vilsack: Won
15. Richardson: Won
16. Clinton: Won

17. Gay marr amend-  Lost
18. Soc security- lost, although increases in max IRA contributions
