TomG says: November 5, 2008 at 1:01 am Congratulations guys… I truly believe that Americans have elected the man who can pull the United States out of the hole that the present administration has been digging for the last 8 years. But I won’t be at complete ease until GW Bush leaves his keys on the hall table and takes that last walk to the waiting chopper on the White House lawn… Rick says: November 5, 2008 at 12:11 pm Reality is gonna bite you guys hard. There are no political solutions to the problems pressing in on the US and the world as a whole. Mr. Obama is going to be a celebrity on a pedestal for a while and then an ineffectual disappointment. Not that McCain would be any better. But “our long national nightmare is over” ? only in the sense that your nightmare has turned into a false dream that you will wake up from soon enough. David B. Benson says: November 5, 2008 at 2:38 pm Rick has a point. But we’ll sure try our best to fix it all.
