As President Barack "H" Obama awakes to a better today (for true Freedom-loving Americans), we flashback in time to dedicate a 2008 Campaign Musical Classic, in honor of his role regarding yesterday National Election Outcomes.
Obama gonna change it (Republican control of the Senate), via HOPE run amuck.
Good morning from the Left Coast on the edge of the "Greece on the Pacific" (the formerly Golden State) as an Easterly Red Political Wave, mostly washed out on impact with the state, but still cause enough political havoc to lighten the Dark Blue Political Landscape, into shades of purple in some areas.
Thus, with no further delay, we bring you the Notes on the Post Election Scorecard (with respects to the late, great LA Sports Writer Allan Malamud), focusing on the winners and losers from yesterday's election proceedings.
No discerning discussion on the LOSERS
in yesterday's elections can go forward without an update on the forlorn hope of a certain former "Blogger, turned Campaign Manager/Consultant",
to find a successful end to one of the longest losing streaks within the local Political Consultant Community. Judging from his recent November 3 comments, the losing tide may have crested (or not) ........, You know it's election eve when Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, Wendy Greuel and one statewide elected who shall remain nameless calls asking about Amanda Renteria. #CA21 no matter what happens tomorrow we have made history with Latino and dem turnout in communities NO ONE has ever engaged before
........., but as in all post-election outcomes, the blunt truth is within the results. Sorry MEAT
, try again ........., Republican Congressman David Valadao 59%, Amanda Renteria 41%. BTW MEAT, how did Hillary do on the Campaign for Senate Democrats

Residents of both the County and City of Los Angeles, will in a short time, come to miss the termed out duo of LA County Board of Supervisors Gloria Molina and Zev Yaroslavsky. With Sheila "Zelda" Kuehl holding a small lead 53-47% lead
over Bobby Shriver, the formality of the results could spell the end of the era of "Fiscal Responsibility" with the new Board Majority of Hilda Solis, "Zelda" and Mark "Home Renovation-Thomas", doing the bidding of their Labor supporters.

Oakland Raider Fans, many who have seen the insides of Pelican Bay, Twin Towers, Wasco, Wayside, Corcoran, and the water front views from San Quentin, surely help with the passage of Prop 47,
which will dumb down the criminal standards of what constitutes a felony (at the future costs to the growing victim class of those impacted by such harmful legislation).
** Latino Republican Campaign Consultant Luis Alvarado deserves props for his work with Downey Republican State Senate Candidate Mario Guerra, in executing a very competitive Campaign against former Assemblyman Tony Mendoza for the 32nd State Senate District. With many ballots still outstanding, the likes of Guerra and 57th AD Candidate Rita Topalian, still have a outside shot of making up the difference in their respective races.
|TONY MENDOZA||Pref: DEM ||49,624||52.30|
|MARIO A GUERRA||Pref: REP ||45,264||47.70|
Lastly, the biggest winner of yesterday's California Vote, was none other that current Governor Moonbeam II, who's victory in securing a Fourth Term
, will propel him into the Democratic Presidential Discussions, regarding a possible rematch with the just ordinary "Billary Rodham Clinton" in 2016.
