I’m writing this at 8:00pm Pacific Time election night and Obama has just been elected the 44th President of the United States, and the Democrats are picking up Senate and House seats. How many seat we won’t know for hours or so. Recent political history has shown the Democrats wasting their advantage when they had it the last time, and the Republicans totally blew away having the presidency and majorities in the House and Senate for much of this decade.
So now that we have made a big change in personnel that run this country, let’s hope that this change isn’t squandered. Unfortunately, that hasn’t been what has happened historically. What can each of us do to help it happen this time?
Change is messy!!!
