US Election Results
Contest Directions: [ The 2006 election results are in. Democrats win control of the house.] The Republicans have been to blame for everything from the economy to the war over the past 8 years by the Democrats. Well, now they have their chance to change all of this. I expect them to put an end to poverty, hunger, war, unemployment, global warming and high gas prices by January 1st. I have no reason not to believe this either. I mean, every 5 or 10 minutes for the past couple months I have been receiving recorded phone messages from the candidates promising these very things if I would only vote for them.
In this contest you are asked to photoshop magazine covers related to the election results. Create magazine covers showing possible cheating methods, dirty voting, or other election surprises and how America will change after these elections.

This contest is fueled by the following news: In the United States, the contentious election campaign came to an end with the Democrats taking control of the U.S. House of Representatives on Tuesday night with the Senate falling into Democratic hands a couple of days later. The Democratic victory ends a Republican hold on power in Washington, D.C., and is considered to be a repudiation of the Iraqi War, the Bush Administration and Congress itself. Nancy Pelosi, the Representative from San Francisco who is expected to be the next Speaker of the House, announced that the American people had voted for change. By dawn on Wednesday, the Democrats were heading towards winning 232 seats in the House of Representatives. Analysts believe Republicans were to end up with 203 seats in that body. Democrats ended up taking 27 Republican held seats. No Democratic incumbent went down to defeat as of Wednesday morning. (Some vote counting in closer races is ongoing.) 2006 seems like a strange reversal of the 1994 campaign when Republicans seized control of Congress during the second year of the Clinton Administration. The Republicans went on to impeach President Bill Clinton. Rumors regarding similar action by Democrats has been swirling around Washington in recent days although the Democratic leader, Pelosi, has said that impeachment is "off the table." Republicans lost in every region of the United states -- urban, suburban and rural. Middle class voters who abandoned the Democratic party in the 1990s appear to have returned in 2006.
