Obama Wins the Presidency
As I had expected, Barack Obama has won the 2008 Presidential contest. In electoral terms, it was a gigantic victory. By the popular vote, he took 51% of voters to McCain's 46%, so it seems he reached only a bit beyond the Democratic base. At any rate, congratulations to Mr Obama on his victory. He's about to enter a job that beats men into the ground while simultaneously elevating them to the ultimate reaches of power. The challenges facing him are tremendous. I wish him all success.
