FROM CNN's Jack Cafferty:

So much for that filibuster-proof majority for the Democrats in the Senate. Republican incumbent Saxby Chambliss won yesterday's run-off in Georgia. The best the Democrats can do now is 59 seats. The Minnesota race is still undecided. It was a much needed win for beleaguered Republicans coming off the beating they took on Election Day.

But perhaps the bigger story is Sarah Palin. The hockey mom-turned-Alaska governor-turned vice presidential candidate-turned national joke flew down to Georgia on Monday and campaigned for Chambliss to huge crowds at several events.

Chambliss said Palin had a huge impact on his win, "She came in on the last day, did a fly-around and, man, she was dynamite."

Palin's former runningmate John McCain also campaigned for Chambliss, as did former Republican presidential contenders Mitt Romney, Mike Huckabee and Rudy Giuliani.

But it was Palin who may have given Chambliss the push he needed to win.

Here’s my question to you: What does Saxby Chambliss’s win in Georgia mean for Sarah Palin who went there to campaign for him?

Interested to know which ones made it on air?
