Good news from Georgia

Saxby Chambliss has been re-elected, so the Dems cannot get 60 seats in the Senate this year.

Of course, the notion that 60 seats guarantees a fillibster-proof senate assumes that everybody votes the party line. But since the only things that, say, Chris Dodd and Kent Conrad have in common are their party moniker (and their Friends of Angelo status) there is little reason to believe that party lines will hold very often at all.
