Silver Linings

I have to disagree with this point by David Freddoso at the National Review about the good and bad results of this election:

9) Rep. Chris Shays (R., Conn.) finally lost.

Granted, Shays had his shortcomings, but I don’t think we should be celebrating the loss of the last GOP House member in New England; it’s pretty bad to be shut out of a whole region.  And he stood by the GOP on a lot of issues.

In the good news department, Tom McClintock of CA-04, profiled here, has a slight (400-vote) lead over his Democratic opponent.  Hopefully, in the tabulation of the final ballots, he’ll be able to maintain that lead.
