Brown Wins in Illinois

Drudge reports:
52% SCOTT BROWN (R) 1,153,808
47% MARTHA COAKLEY (D)D: 1,052,391
I suspect more than a few Democrats are relieved over this. Under the current rules, without that 60th vote for cloture, the Republicans can now filibuster the Health Care "reform" bill into extinction. For the current session, anyways. This means that Democrats who know that voting for it will hurt their re-election chances will not have to go on the record as supporting it.
