I'm feeling definitely out of the mainstream. America really seems to like war, deficits, job loss, and george w. bush. apparently, they (I mean we) are not such big fans of civil rights. And waiting to count all of the votes seems to be a controversial subject, since we aren't into math, either.
I don't see much cause for optimism. The next four years are bound to be like the last four, except with a bigger mandate and a less evenly divided congress.
