The election that seemed like it would never end is finally over.
For the first time in a long time (ever?) I can say I’m excited for my friends, colleagues and neighbours to the south. Who knows what the next 4 years with President Obama will bring, but at a minimum it will be immeasurably better than the last 8, and at best it could be a lot more. Only time will tell.
Unfortunately it seems like Al Franken may have lost his bid for a Senate seat by the slimmest of margins. I would have loved to see such an intelligent and outspoken person there. Right now his race is showing too close to call, as the difference is only about 500 votes, but that doesn’t bode well.
