In all the excitement, it's still undecided for President in Nebraska 2nd Congressional District. The margin is 500 votes ahead for McCain with about 9000 votes yet to count. It obviously doesn't matter in terms of the outcome of the election, but you can bet your ass it matters to those of us in Omaha who support Obama and are tired of people thinking we're just as conservative as the rest of the state. I'll keep you posted on what should be an interesting end to the election.
Jim Esch did not win yesterday, but gave incumbent Lee Terry hell. Esch won't run again, as this is his 2nd loss to Terry. Terry had better hope that he actually does something in the next two years or his midterm re-election could get ugly. Democrats need to find someone strong in local politics to challenge him, since Terry basically sits in Washington, D.C. and collects a paycheck. If you don't believe me, search the Congressional Record for bills he's actually authored. You won't find much.
