Called

Ohio for Obama. Election for Obama.

To the Dems who read this, congratulations. In some respects, you made a smart calculation. This was a year in which Democrats were almost assured victory. Obama supporters wisely supported an ideological torch-bearer over a lifetime politician in Hillary Clinton. I chided the decision, noting that Clinton would have won in a landslide.

The left-wing took a risk, and instead of picking the guaranteed victor, they elected their horse.

Well, he's not my horse. The Democrats have their George W. Bush (and then some). As a blogger, I'll have fun either way, so long as Obama tolerates free speech, and for some time after that.

To Senator McCain, thank you. You are a tremendous man. The dominoes fell against your presidency, and you still came damn close to attaining it. People are alive because of you. May you be remembered as the William Seward of your generation, but with more acclaim.

To Barack Obama, good luck, you brilliant, brilliant man. Please don't get me killed.

Well, now I can shift focus to my state measures and the close race for US Senate in my state. Hopefully we can keep that one in the red. Thanks for the constant updates Kevin.

From Oregon,

Luke

Wow. Obama is "dumb?" I know you're annoyed, but come on...Usually you're funny. I'm one of the few people on the D side that hasn't called Bush "stupid" (because he isn't). You might think he's wrong on policy and ideology but Obama is smarter than Kerry, Bush (41 & 43), McCain, Carter, Reagan, Dole and most likely Clinton.

And no, Obama won't get you killed. But it's nice you said please.

I've had the argument about whether Obama is intelligent, and outside of his ability to navigate a TelePrompter, I see no evidence that he is. But, like Bush, he's a charmer.

He is not even close to Clinton.
