The article examines the impact on politics and policy in Washington as a result of the Democratic victory in 2006 mid-term United States elections. Among the changes are the resignation of Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, the expressed willingness of U.S. President George W. Bush to work with U.S. Representative and Speaker-to-be Nancy Pelosi, and the Democratic majorities in the House and Senate now favoring the administration approach on immigration earlier blocked by Republicans.
