Country of the Victorious Democrats - Kommersant Moscow

"The midterm Congressional elections in the United States brought victory to the Democrats, who won a majority in the House of Representatives and who have a good chance at taking control of the Senate as well. The failure of the Republicans, who have been in power for 12 years, will mean serious adjustments in the course of America's foreign policy, particularly in the direction of Russia. Yesterday US President George Bush announced the retirement of Pentagon chief Donald Rumsfeld, who was one of the main architects of US foreign policy. With details from Washington is Kommersant's correspondent Dmitry Sidorov. "
