Fallout

Filed under: Politics — PolitiCalypso @ 3:57 pm

Tuesday was a mandate for change, clean government, and idea-based politics.

It was a mandate for a check on the out-of-control Bush administration.

It was a mandate for moderation and reform.

It was NOT a mandate for conservatism.

These newly elected Democrats are socially libertarian, for the most part, and economically populist. They are not right-wing conservatives, and you’ll see that difference when they assume office next year.

There’s not too much for me to say. My birthday is tomorrow, and this was a beautiful present.

Thank you, America — with special thanks to 9,000 voters in Virginia (a fraction of 1% of the population) who decided to get out and vote.
