Random notes: The only race that I paid particular attention to was the governor's race in South Carolina. Governor Mark Sanford has worked hard for political reform in this state (much of the time against his own party). Expect to see a lot of "investigations", but don't look for progress or reform. Republicans lost and deservedly so. When only 50% of your registered voters turn out to vote for you, you know you are doing something wrong. I seriously doubt that Republicans will get the message and return to their roots--they will see the Democrat win as a message to become even more socialistic ("moderate" they call it), further alienating their conservative base. The party in Washington will continue much the way it has for decades. Only a third party has hope of bringing that. A friend of mine pointed out, "Expect to see a kinder, gentler Pelosi." I don't think this will happen right away, but she will learn quickly. The News Snipet still predicts that Senator Clinton will win the presidency in 2008.

"Snipet" (pronounced: snipe - it) is not a word.It is a derivative of two words: "Snipe" and "Snippet".

Miriam Webster defines Snipe as: to aim a carping or snide attack, or: to shoot at exposed individuals (as of an enemy's forces) from a usually concealed point of vantage.

Miriam Webster defines Snippet as: : a small part, piece, or thing; especially : a brief quotable passage.

In short, "Snipets" are brief, snide shots at exposed situations from a concealed vantage point.
