Republicans are telling the A.P. that Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld will be resigning. So, all it took was the Democrats winning the House and possibly the Senate.

The NY Times headlines it "Rumsfeld Resigns as Defense Secretary After Big Election Gains for Democrats." President Bush will replace Rumsfeld with Robert Gates, the current Texas A&M president who clocked in 26 years at the CIA and National Security Council.

And at this point, Montana has gone to Jon Tester, ousting Republican Senator Conrad Burns. Virginia's Senate returns are still too close to call, as the power for the Senate hangs in the balance.
