Courageous Kids Predict the End of Rumsfeld

Just a week ago, we wondered how big the victory would be. We dared not imagine that we'd win the House and the Senate. And Rumsfeld's resignation was the stuff of kids' dreams. But it all happened, including the defeat of two of the most egregious ballot initiatives we'd seen in a while here in initiative-happy California.

But kids do say the darndest things. And with courage, dreams come true.

Have a look to remember where we were and where we are.
