POST-ELECTION RODEO:
* Democrats take the House. Meanwhile, the fate of the Senate rests on two close races.
* Democrats also take the majority of governorships.
* Good news: first ever female Speaker of the House. Bad news: it's Nancy Pelosi.
* Maryland: Cardin defeats Steele. O'Malley defeats Ehrlich.
* Virginia senate race too close to call.
* Virginia passes anti-gay marriage amendment.
* Santorum defeated. Yay.
* Hastert's future uncertain.
* Lieberman wins, and may cost Democrats the Senate. Boo.
* Schwarzenegger re-elected.
* South Dakota shoots down abortion amendment.
* More on other ballot initiatives here.

ANALYSIS:
* The Republicans ceded the center, and paid for it.
* A rebuke for Bush, the war, and the right.
* Howard Kurtz on the morning after.

And, of course, the biggest news of the day, Britney and K-Fed have split.
