Saxby Chambliss hosts GOP party in Buckhead 

While the eyes of the world and nation were affixed on the race between Barack Obama and John McCain, U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss was running a tight one himself against Democratic nominee Jim Martin. On Nov. 4, the Republican incumbent — who as things stand now is facing a runoff — hosted his fellow Republicans at the Intercontinental Hotel in Buckhead. Cash bars, fancy suits and pretty women were a-plenty. As well as open-jawed silence around midnight when McCain conceded to the senator from Illinois.
