Updated 11/9/06, 11:23 a.m.
The dust had barely settled when clear winners and losers began to emerge from the Democrats' dramatic capture of Congress. We decided to take a look at who's up and who's down now that so many familiar GOP faces will be taking their last government-paid shuttle back home at the end of this year and fresh leaders will emerge.
