As an optimist, I’ll say that I’m pleased with the results. Despite the misgivings I have with Obama and, especially, Huckabee, it is nice to see Clinton and Romney have heir asses handed to them. They represent the sad, current state of politics in America: empty ambition and idealogical stagnation. While the winners are really only slight deviations from the current mainstream politics, it is good that it is actually being rewarded for once. Also I can’t help but like Obama. Let’s hope he does something substantial with his energy and charisma.
