The first is the number of seats won by the Republicans in Congress, state legislatures and among governors throughout the United States. Six hundred and sixty seats. That's lots of new power for the GOP -- power from local, individual legislative districts in each state right on up to the nation's capital. As a result of the 2010 elections, that's REAL power.
The second is the number of new Republican members of the House and Senate who will arrive in Washington next week to take their oaths of office. Eighty seven. That's a huge number and it represents a significant shift in power.
Ohhhhhhh, yes . . . Elections really DO have consequences!
