Iowa Guy 2.0: Now the work begins

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Guy 2.0

Last night was one of those iconic moments in time; it came shortly
after 10:00 p.m. Central Time, when California was called for Barack
Obama, putting the Democrat over the 270 electoral vote mark he needed
to win the presidency. I was at the gathering for Rob Hubler's
supporters at the Amerisports Bar in the Ameristar Casino in Council
Bluffs. A roar went up from the crowd as we all cheered. Men and women
both had tears of joy on their faces as we realized the import of the
results. And we celebrated. But, like the mid-term elections of 2006,
the results were mixed. Democrats gained five seats in the Senate,
furthering their majority. In the early morning light of 7:00 a.m. as
I write this, there are still four seats undecided, including that of
convicted felon Ted Stevens (R - No!).
