USAToday takes a look as the jockeying for position in 2008 begins.
"The elections this week transformed not only Congress but the playing field for the 2008 presidential race. Some contenders self-destructed, one went home and a meteor streaked onto the radar in the form of Illinois Sen. Barack Obama.
There were two things, however, that didn't change: the contenders leading the polls on both sides.
Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y., won a resounding re-election victory after raising nearly $40 million - more than any other Senate candidate this year. She isn't yet talking about her future, which is widely presumed to include a presidential bid but could involve a leadership role in a possibly Democratic Senate."
