Well the results are in and Obama won. I was not an Obama supporter but I also was not a McCain supporter. In fact I found all of the candidates disappointing; some for policy; some for judgement; some for lack of ability. Certainly some more disappointing than others. Since I live in California my support for any candidate would have not changed the outcome one bit since California was known to be solid for Obama. Odds are that things under Obama will not be as good as his supporters have claimed nor as bad as his opponents have claimed. Plus he will likely get both credit and blame for things over which his administration will have little control.
John Scalzi has a Reality Check discussion which I got to via a post in Cheryl Morgan blog.
One thing that will change is that we will all need to add Obama to our spell check dictionaries.
