Political Forecast: A dream come true: Democrats make history

Excerpted from this post at Political Forecast
Unlike some other Iowa bloggers, I thought I was dreaming last night. And then I woke up, and it was indeed a dream came true. As Secretary of State Chet Culver said on Monday, Iowans had the ability to make histoyr yesterday. And Governor-Elect Culver reiterated that last night as the Democrats swept the governorship, the state senate, and the state house. Democrats accomplished the trifecta in Iowa — we took it all. There hasn't been a Democratic movement in this state like this since 1964 and LBJ. ... Should we boast? Of course we should, but not for long and not extravagantly. We won, plain and simple. But as Governor-Elect Culver said last night, we have to lock arms and produce 'One Iowa' and lead this state in a combined effort to make it great for everyone. We have ideas and plans with which we need to follow through, and we can do that.
