election surprise

Not quite *speechless,* but I had to rewind the Morning Edition stream to be sure that I didn't mishear the results of the Spanish election:
Spain's opposition Socialists swept to an upset victory in general elections on Sunday, ousting the center-right party of Prime Minister José María Aznar in a groundswell of voter anger and grief over his handling of terrorist bombings in Madrid last week. [nyt story, analysis]

I hope that we don't need to find out how Americans would react to similar terrorist actions only three days before an election.
