Everyone everywhere is doing it.
If everyone was going to jump off a cliff, I would NOT do it.
Well, okay, a little, bit.
Bush didn’t win by as much as I expected, though the congressional races and the popular majority indicate that the GOP win was pretty “solid” across the board.
I wonder if he’s going to pull out all the stops now that he doesn’t have to worry about re-election, and Cheney doesn’t have to worry about running. If Gulianni doesn’t get a high-level position and Bush goes nuts, I guess we’ll know who the GOP will run against Hillary or Edwards or whoever in 2008. If Gulianni is near the top AND Bush pulls out all the stops AND things don’t go extremely well he’s toast before the primaries start.
I really do believe that this was a pretty significant victory for the Republicans. But I’m not overly excited. Relieved, yes. But the EV count was much, much closer than I expected. If anything, this major win by the GOP really sets the stage for the Dems in 2008. The GOP is going to need a “new blood” candidate, I think.
Of course, if the war goes very very well over the next four years, maybe I’ll care about the Democrats’ issues again by 2008.
UPDATE: Oh, and I had mentioned that I’m in Detroit and would post pictures if post-election rioters burned down the city.
This morning I was downtown and about to begin snapping pics when I realized it really didn’t look like NEW damage.
I guess Detroit always looks like this…
