I had thought about this when it looked like Kerry was going to win, based on those faulty exit poll numbers.
Every two years, the country has a choice. Sometimes the country's going to agree with you; sometimes they won't. Sometimes you'll be convinced you have fantastic arguments, and the other guy doesn't know what he's talking about. And yet sometimes they choose the other guy. Sometimes you lose. It stinks, but it happens.
What do you do? You mope. You drink. You swear a bit.
And then, after a little while, you get back up on the horse and try again.
Regarding this, I think the Democrats have inferior policies. But the country chose 'em; now they get to see how they work.
My congratulations to tonight's winners; chin up to the losers. Tomorrow is another day.
I'm out of the country in another day or so; many more thoughts after a post-election vacation.
