A few lessons for the future:

(1) High turnout is not always bad for Republicans.

(2) Exit polls need some serious revamping.

(3) The Latino vote does not belong to the Democrats.

It seems like it's all over except the shouting -- barring some serious and unexpected glitches. Dan Rather is as glum as Hillary Clinton is elated.

The Senate looks good -- aside from Pete Coors' disappointing loss in Colorado, everything seems wonderful, especially the South Dakota Senate race. And congratulations to David Vitter, who has avoided a runoff election in Louisiana by winning more than 100% of the vote. He'll be the first Republican senator from that state since Reconstruction.

Kerry/Edwards should see the writing on the wall, and hopefully they will -- early tomorrow.

But it's not a time for gloating -- it's a time for deep and heartfelt thanksgiving for the courage and the integrity of the American people, who decided to stand up for freedom and for George W. Bush. In doing so, they rejected the venomous and vituperative campaign of what has, sadly, become the party of Michael Moore.

Tonight, as always, I am proud to be part of this country.

God bless America.
