Her expenditure of vast sums defeated Tim Jennings in Roswell. He was her only avenue in maintaining a shaky coalition that could help her programs.(once she gets some). And, she did not defeat Senator Michael Sanchez. Sanchez will now make her life miserable which is to be expected.
All in all on the national scene things remain the same. Obama is President. The Senate is blue. The House is red. What happens now can only threaten the existence of the GOP if they are not careful. Their craziness must now stop or they will be completely marginalized. That would not be a good thing. We need to have that party return to moderate stands so we can have some solutions to our pressing issues.
Last night my sister Carlota called from Turkey. She is on tour and was staying in a farm house and the farmer ran in to say Obama was the winner. He was happy. Four years ago my sister called from Bhutan. She was visiting a monastery when a monk came in with his thumbs up to say Obama had won. He had an Obama button on his robe and was happy. The world sighed with relief last night. We did not return to the 50s.
