111. As a resident of the dinkiest state . . .
Choosing between Chafee and Whitehouse was by far the most difficult vote I've ever cast.

I went with Whitehouse to insure a Democratic majority in the Senate for an equalization of power. Though with the totally rigged optical scanners, it didn't work out as such.

Landslide denied indeed.

Ughhh.

Whitehouse is an ace though. Chafee is also. I hear they are great friends.

That's cool.
