Joe Walsh should never have been elected for any office in the first place.

Out with the bad ideas and big mouthed jerks. We do have a new day for America, only the election is over. If you do not stay involved than all of the hard work is for nothing.

Another well-deserved victory! Tammy Duckworth is a great addition to the House. Joe Walsh will probably be offered a job at Fox News. He fits the profile: ignorance, anger and disrespect for anyone who doesn't agree with him.

Tammy Duckworth is a Great Addition to the Democratic Party's Progressive wing!!!!!:) I hope she convinces the Party to start cleaning its own house by ejecting FAUX Democrats like IL. Gov. Pat Quinn!!!!!

Noted. Looking back on all the e.mail requests for donations from various Dems, I could pretty much tell you who was going to win by the amount of daily mailings I got. Tammy Duckworth was one hard worker, who definitely deserved this win. It was particularly fitting that she got rid of Joe ("You Lie") Walsh.
