Sounds good but doesn't cut the mustard in my view. Future elections will matter very little as I think we have passed the moral and fiscal tipping point. We have over 100% of GDP to debt ratio and that is just the debt on the book... ie doesn't count SS, Medicare and Medicaid. We are running Trillion dollar deficits along with QE3 that is spending over 80 billion a money. Any cuts in government will be down the road and likely not to happen. There is already a growing exodus of American companies and the riches money which will just increase if and when taxes are raised on them.

"Barack Obama won because he recognized a new America." Or maybe an America more fluid, more insubstantial than post-election wisdom is ready to grant. You can't always tell about "new" -- a truth the human race rarely acknowledges.

We'll see whether James Carville's and Stan Greenberg's words from a Democracy Corps survey stand up better than the consensus of November 1965, following the Lyndon Johnson-led slaughter of almost every Republican downwind from Barry Goldwater. Johnson, father of the Great Society, was all but run out of Washington on a rail after mucking up the Vietnam War.

Meanwhile, as everyone...
