The reelection of Sen. Saxby ChamblissClarence (Saxby) Saxby ChamblissThe Hill's Morning Report - Gillibrand drops out as number of debaters shrinks Hoekstra emerges as favorite for top intelligence post Republicans say Democrats holding up disaster relief as 'Sandy payback' MORE (R-Ga.) means different things to different bloggers. Conservatives see it as the first step in a Republican rebirth, while liberals write that it doesn't change the fact that Republicans will need to cooperate. The decision by Sen. Mel Martinez (R-Fla.) not to seek another term gives former Gov. Jeb Bush (R) a chance to rehabilitate his family's name, according to bloggers on both sides.
