Witching Hour

We are in the weird zone at just after 7 pm EST, when nobody really knowsanything and political types are flashing inside information around the country.

I picked up the following from a Democratic source. It sounds verypromising for Democrats, but don't jump to conclusions at this hour.

First-breakout of exit polls for Senate races in eight states showDemocrats leading:

Virginia 52-47. Rhode Island 53-46. Pennsylvania 57-42. Ohio 57-43. New Jersey 52-45. Montana 50-48. Maryland 52-46.

Republicans are leading in Tennesseee 51-48 and Arizona 50-46.

Again, don't pop any corks yet...but this does make a nice start forthe evening.
