The supermajority never really existed because of pussies like ben nelson, I suppose you are one of those who thinks 90% of the public is against health care reform when in fact polling shows that when people understand what it does a majority are in favor.

I voted for Carcieri, a republican, because of his position on wind (read deepwater wind farm off block island).

an educated public with a broad capacity for general analysis of a wide range of issues can reasonably discuss issues without jumping to ridiculous conclusions about someone they never met. Gore just got the most votes, in florida, anyway, thats old stuff.
