It's 3.30am GMT and bedtime. As predicted Rick Santorum has lost Pennsylvania - a terrible defeat for conservatives - one of three Democrat pick-ups (so far).
Republicans are still in with a chance of holding Virginia, Missouri, Tennessee and Montana. They need to hold three of that quartet to keep a slim majority in the Senate and my guess is that they will. If they only keep two of those seats it will be a 50-50 Senate and Republicans will be dependent upon the casting vote of the Vice President.
For all of the reasons identified yesterday - pork-barrelled projects and a failure to progress reform - the GOP probably deserve to lose control of the House but keeping a majority in the Senate will be crucial to one jewel in the tarnished crown of George W Bush's presidential legacy. That jewel is his legacy of judicial appointments. Judicial activism has seen liberals advance causes that they have been unable to deliver at the ballot box. Abortion rights are the stand out example of that activism. The appointments of John Roberts and Samuel Alito to the Supreme Court have tilted the Court in a more conservative direction. The next two years may see another justice retire and President Bush's most important final act will be the man or woman he sends to the Senate for confirmation.
There'll be more posts later - one will focus on what else George W Bush might do with his final two years and another on what Democrats would do differently with regards to Iraq. In the meantime RealClearPolitics.com is the ideal place for the very latest election news.
