    Can it be true? Is our 8 yr long national nightmare over?

    Did I actually hear the Republican Governor of Minnesota ascribe the gigantic Republican loss in Minnesota to Republicans having to fight the mess of the last 8 years?

    Oh my goodness. This is absolutely historic.

    With Obama's victories in Florida, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Minnesota, I think it's OK to begin celebrating. Now...NO on 8

    Another witch being dead ... Senator Elizabeth Dole ... well, I should probably research her just a little more, but that one story about faking her opponent's voice and words in a commercial sounded pretty low.

    can't talk dead witches without referencing now defeated Marilyn Musgrave of Colorado - who championed the anti-gay marriage (and anti-gay everything) in my fine state of Colorado.

    welcome, betsy markey! goodbye, antichrist!

    The Front Page of the NY Times has:

    McCain Loses as Bush Legacy is Rejected

    All over the world people are celebrating the Obama win
    Not just because he is a worthy man but also because it is a repudiation of everything the Bush White House and the NeoCon republicans stood for

    I remember the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. and the riots that ensued. The nightmare that was Watergate and Vietnam. The AIDS crisis that was ignored by the Moral Majority under Reagan. The Iraq debacle under Bush. Maybe the US has elected a President that is going to pay some attention to what the country's people need for a change.

    Wasn't here a New England congressman who conceded his loss early to a dem and was quoted as saying something along the lines of "We lost because their was a Tsunami coming".

    I hope America and all of her politics takes this moment to readjust and see what the people want. We don't want political parties on a polar opposite spectrum, we want rational thought and equality.

    Hopefully the culture wars have been put to rest for awhile. The world has changed but not just because of Mr. Obama. See below.

    Yes, I should have put "global."

    And, here's more. As I mentioned in another Forum topic thread, I have been amazed, independent of politics, how the Republican leadership "didn't get it" through the latter part of the campaign.

    Isn't there a saying "to do the same thing over and over again that is not working is a sign of insanity"?

    Well, they had so many signs that the kind of conservative reactionarism (spouted by some Rjers, amazingly, too) was losing the country.

    What did they do in response? I believe they forced a reasonable voice in their camp, McCain, to embrace a more conservative message, foisted an intolerable affront to thinking women, Palin, on him as a VP candidate.

    And, now, after the nation gigantically informed them that they blew it, I heard the Republican National Committee chair state that the election results were "...not a mandate..." And that the Republican party will rise again.

    It may rise again, but not if his/their response is to resurrect the same political platform. If they seriously think that Palin will be the head of a new thrust to win the next election, then guess what....

    Ding Dong, The Witch is Dead....The Wicked Witch is Really Dead....

    because they will bury the Republican party in the mire of another huge defeat in the next election, unless they embrace a more moderate world view.

    See, I see McCain as a bit of a victim here.....and the wonderful concession speech he made underscored that....as well as Obama's nice comments about McCain (I wonder, if there is something afoot to bring McCain into the new presidency somehow).
