The good news: President Obama returns to office and Linda McMahon returns to the charming world of entertainment wrestling.
The bad news: Nothing much has changed. We have a democratic president & senate and a far right conservative House.
Don't expect much to happen--unless voters get fed up with the House's obstructionist stance and dump many or all of them in the midterm 2014 congressional elections.
One final observation and then I'm done with politics (for a while): This past election season was marked by some very troubling tendencies. I've never seen so much hostility, acrimony and hatred as I did these past several years. You can't lay it all on differences in political philosophy. There's an under current of very dark motives (pun intended).
We have a long way to go in this country.
