The dems took the house, the senate and the presidency, and honestly, I'm more excited about Obama taking North Carolina than anything.  Currently, he's in the lead, but it's still too close to call.

I'm really happy about the outcome of the North Carolina and Virginia senate races. The presidential race in those states is gravy -- the congressional races are the meat.

On the other hand, that three former Confederate states have returned electoral slates favoring an African-American for president does say a lot for how far we've come as a nation. I've been so busy focusing on the short-term political ramifications of the election that I haven't thought a lot about what it says about the fundamentals of our society yet. Been too busy celebrating, the sober reflection will come later.

Hey, Jamie, I met a professor from Elon last night, Ann Simpkin, and your name came up in conversation. She said to tell you hi!
