More balance in the House of Reps and Senate at the Capital hopefully means better cooperation by the Republican dominating weasels. Hopefully this group of folks will help us strengthen the Democratic side and put quality candidates that can win in place.

Agree that we need stellar candidates to run. Not just party hacks who think that it is "their turn" We (Dems) can take back control of state house if we court the middle class that we turned our backs on in recent past years. Many reluctantly signed on with the Republicans.

Check where all the Democrats are from Kansas City and St. Louis . Got news for everyone , everywhere else in Missouri Republicans rule by a landslide with traditional family values.

arewethereyet - did you hear that Beth Gottstein was going to run for a house seat?

dh - you should do a little more homework on rural Missouri. While Reps have been winning it has not been necessarily by landslides. Add that to the fact that many of those rural "values voters" are starting to understand that having access to health care within 100 miles of where they live might be a bigger "value" than worrying about gay marriage, stem cell research and abortion.

This is excellent. Rachel Storch is one of the brightest new politicians in the state. She's intelligent, articulate, passionate. I just wish we had someone like her among the KC delegation...

jd you obviously don't know Mike Talboy or Beth Low.

Jh, did you see that Luke Scavuzzo beat powerful incumbent Rex Rector in southern Cass County? What about the Democratic takeover in rural Kirksville's House and Senate seats? Sounds like a "Republican landslide" to me.

So Talboy, the lawyer from St Joseph in Auditor Montee's firm, is going to lead the charge for the Dems? Since he is trying to represent an innercity KC district would think he has his hands full. But he and Jason Klumb, his law partner, have an agenda that doesnt include doing any work other than getting elected. How appropriate the Dems are harnessing that drive.

If I remember right, Talboy went to UMKC and has obviously lived in KC long enough to qualify to run for office (it IS a state requirement to live in district for a determinate amount of time). The guy knows the issues and has a better understanding than 9:26 gives him credit for. I'm curious to know how you already know his 'agenda' 5 weeks into his first term as a member of the party that just got stripped of even more representation in committees? He worked hard to get elected, I even heard he went door to door in a district that hasn't seen that type of campaigning for at least...8 years? Maybe more? Going back and checking his old campaign site it said he was a 'regional field coordinator' for Kerry. Maybe that's why he got chosen, because he has a good understanding of the field operations needed to win?

We can't sit back and let the republicans continue to hold ground on the field game. There was a 5 seat pick-up in a heavy Democrat year? Obviously we need a fresher perspective...and if you're not interested in a Democratic majority in '08, you'd better stay on your toes...we're figuring it out. The Jeff Roe/"values" based campaigns are wearing out quickly in the close districts.

Talboy from St. Joe? No way. He has done a lot for dems in KC and if you had done your homework you would know the Montee's have an office in KC. He and Beth certainly know field in KC and now the state can benefit from that knowledge.

whatcha runnin' for arewethereyet?

Just what in the hell are "traditional family values."??

anon at 9:26 - I sure hope Jeff is paying you overtime. Looks like you are in the office late this evening.

"But he and Jason Klumb, his law partner, have an agenda that doesnt include doing any work other than getting elected."
9:26 you are way out of line and obviously have no idea what you're talking about. Mike Talboy has NOTHING in common with Klumb other than the fact that they worked for the same employer.

Yeah, Talboy has more in common with Justus than Klumb...they're both WAAAAAYYYY out there on the left. I love seeing dem infighting...they just can't let their divisions end at a primary. My guess is that the person complaining about Talboy supported someone else. HA! Oh well, as long as it wasn't Sharon anymore. Lesser of many evils.

Dear Friend:

Are you ready yet for the November 4th Elections? How about your friends, family, and neighbors?
More Americans are expected to vote this year than ever before in history, so don’t be left out! Be sure to ask everyone you know the following questions:
• Are you registered to vote? If you moved recently, have you updated your voter registration?
• Did you apply for an Absentee Ballot? Do you know your state may not require any reason?
• Can you find your local Polling Place? Do you know it may have changed from last time?
The answers to these questions -- and all your voting needs -- can be found at www.StateDemocracy.org

The primary components of a legislature are one or more chambers or houses: assemblies that debate and vote upon bills. A legislature with only one house is called unicameral. A bicameral legislature possesses two separate chambers, usually described as an upper house and a lower house, which often differ in duties, powers, and the methods used for the selection of members. Much rarer have been tricameral legislatures; the most recent existed in the waning years of caucasian-minority rule in South Africa.

In most parliamentary systems, the lower house is the more powerful house while the upper house is merely a chamber of advice or review. However, in presidential systems, the powers of the two houses are often similar or equal. In federations, it is typical for the upper house to represent the component states; the same applies to the supranational legislature of the European Union. For this purpose, the upper house may either contain the delegates of state governments, as is the case in the European Union and in Germany and was the case in the United States before 1913, or be elected according to a formula that grants equal representation to states with smaller populations, as is the case in Australia and the modern United States.
