The thing that is good: that there is one less Republican and one more democrat in the U.S. Senate.
The thing that is bad: that this election was about sleaze not policy.
Supporters of the Democratic Party in the U.S.A. cannot claim to be reversing the rise of nasty conservatism in their country until they start winning seats because the voters prefer the Democrat manifesto to the Republican one.
It was a very good thing that the child molester lost.
It would have been a much better thing if the Democrats had won.
