Bush sat down to lunch with the San Francisco woman who'll have his nuts in a legislative vise for the next two years. Donald Rumsfeld waved a pouty goodbye. Dick Cheney was described as "glum" in the New York Times.

State you can count on: Virginia

Numbers of years waited under George W. Bush for good news: 6

Power of Prayer: exists

Democracy: works (eventually)
