A couple of quick post-election thoughts:
  • Do you think Barak Obama woke up this morning and thought, "Oh, man, now I actually have to do this."? Similarly, do you think John McCain woke up secretly pleased that the profound economic, military and foreign policy issues this country faces are going to be someone else's problem?
  • I was very disappointed to see that three more states wrote bigotry into their constitutions, as California, Florida and Arizona approved bans on gay marriage. As much as Obama's win last night was a gigantic blow against racial inequality, these election results show that we still have a long way to go to fight intolerance of all kinds.
