Oh dear. Oh dear. It's not all sunshine this morning. Ted Stevens is leading by just under 5,000 votes in the Alaskan Senate race, with 96% of the votes counted.
If Stevens is elected he will almost certainly be ejected from the Senate in January because of his ethics conviction.
This means there will have to be a special election. That will almost certainly be Begich (Democrat) versus Sarah Palin (Republican). (No wonder she didn't want to say who she voted for).
Palin would probably win.
So it would be Senator Palin for four years with a nice run-up for her to the 2012 Republican nomination battle.
Oh well. At least she's been vetted now - i.e. by the national election process.
