The BBC says:

Democrats are set to win the final seat needed to take control of the US Senate, the Associated Press reports.

AP declared Democrat Jim Webb victor in Virginia by 7,236 votes over Republican incumbent George Allen. Official results have yet to confirm a win.

Democrats have already taken the House of Representatives, and Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld has resigned.

President George W Bush is to meet key Democrat Nancy Pelosi, and has said he wishes to work with her party.

Mr Bush is to have lunch on Thursday with Ms Pelosi, who is to become the new Speaker of the House of Representatives.

Who knows, maybe Bush has suddenly decided to become a reasonable person. But don't count on it. He came to power in 2000 claiming he was going to be a uniter, not a divider, but has spent the last six years being as divisive as possible, for party political reasons. His speech makers know how to get him to utter sentences, but there is no proof he believes any of what he says. Fortunately he is now a lame duck.
