Who are the key new Republican leaders?

(CNN) - With Republicans back in control of the House of Representatives, a new power structure will emerge over the next few weeks.

Republicans needed 39 seats to gain the majority, and are projected to gain 60 seats, the biggest shift in more than a half-century.

    The biggest "defeat" of the night was to Sarah Palin

    She cannot even deliver her "home state"

    The American way of a peaceful revolution is a sight to behold.Fighting it out at the ballot box-so much more successful and long lasting than what extremists in other countries try to do. Listen to the people and a sitting government may very well stay in power. Otherwise those is control will spend their country's resources trying to maintain control instead of working to improve the quality of life for their constituents. Iraq, Iran, Bosnia etc. study us and learn why US of A is so successful. We aren't perfect but we don't have to use armed might to run our country. I sleep at night knowing I will wake up in the morning to the same life style I had the day previous.
