The reelection of Sen. Saxby ChamblissClarence (Saxby) Saxby ChamblissFight for Senate majority boils down to Georgia Lobbying world GOP lobbyist tapped for White House legislative affairs 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.

The Republican victory in Georgia shows that President-elect Barack ObamaBarack Hussein ObamaCan Biden vanquish Democrats' old, debilitating ghosts? How space exploration will help to address climate change Democrats' squabbling vindicates Biden non-campaign MORE's coattails aren't that long and that the GOP can win in 2010 and 2012, writes Townhall's Hugh Hewitt.

Two sources close to Bush told Marc Ambinder that the former governor is seriously considering a campaign for Senate. If Bush runs, he could clear the GOP primary field and help the party's image with Hispanic voters, Ambinder adds. The Senate campaign provides Bush with an opportunity to redefine his and his family's image and set him up for a future run for the White House, writes Hot Air's Allahpundit. Though the family name isn't that popular across the country, Bush himself is well-liked in his own state and would probably prevent Democrats from taking it over, writes Oliver Willis.
