- Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Florida were thought to be key states for Obama.  If he won any one of them, he'd have the election in the bag.  As usual, this makes me question the effectiveness of the popular vote beyond the occasional spoiler or justification for third-party funding.
- While Obama seems to have won all three, he didn't need *any of them* this time around.  (Yes, he would have won by all of two electoral votes, but a win's a win.)
- Prop 8 passed.  WTF?
- Now what?  Sure, we're likely to have some significant policy changes, but at the end of the day, there's a huge mess to clean up, a lot of which is tied into personal responsibility.  You can't legislate people out of being stupid.
- I can't be the only one worried about a disproportionately high number of assassination attempts.
