On Election Night 2006 I was at Election Central from 8PM until midnight at the Egan Center in Anchorage to view Alaska election results. Some good people won. Some good people lost. Politics is a high stakes affair, not just for the candidates, but also for the state and nation.

Hopefully, there will be a more positive relationship between the administration and legislature. People need to trust their elected leaders – and that’s even more important than the gas pipeline.

Our governor-elect is Sarah Palin, and it’s hardly a secret that I’m pleased. The Republican majority in the House has been reduced to 24 to 16, and in the State Senate reduced to 11 to 9. The House organizational meeting is Friday the 10th, where the Speaker of the House and other leadership will be chosen by secret ballot, in addition to committee chairs. The telephone lines between legislators are truly a-buzzing.

I’m very concerned about the power shift in Washington DC, and how that may affect national security. I feel less safe today than I did yesterday.
