I got very upset and had a hard time sleeping, because I could see Obama had the people in his grip. I listened to Hugh Hewitt talking with James Lileks (Mpls StarTribune columnist) afterwards and Lileks said that it doesn't matter what Obama's policies are, or what he's going to do to the economy, people just "want this."
It's like the whole country has taken to gambling. People are nuts! It's a downhill slide! It's a disaster! But people are willing to gamble, because they believe that what's happening now is the fault of the current president - that's that. People want a change, but hey(!) all a baby needs is a change! And they totally expect the same from McCain.
By the way, I sat with James Lileks at the Minnesota Organization of Bloggers party at Keegans pub in downtown Minneapolis in the summer of 2007, not knowing what illustrious company I was sitting with. He just sat there smoking a clove cigarette, or something, and I didn't notice that he was so brilliant.
