Record turnouts, strong, passionate, valuable disagreements, with deep theoretical differences. But we had our election; we voted in our Republic, and although President Elect Barack Obama won with 52% of the electorate, 46% of the electorate did not agree with this choice. But in our country, there's no blood in the streets, no storming the capitol. . . at worse, there's frustration but still a working within the system. I'm so impressed and hopeful for our country!
Let's all hope for an administration and ask of ourselves that we will now not be distracted by theoretical differences but devote energies in a very pragmatic way to solving some of the immense problems facing us.
Last night, I discovered that on channel 352, I could watch 8 stations at once!!!!! Last night, the Weather Channel (bottom right) was often BBC or comedy central. It was great! I sat with my laptop showing pollsters.com and switched to which ever channel looked the most promising at any moment. What a night!
I hope that now that the election is over, I can go back to watching things like Netflix movies!
