A lot of good things can and will come from this election. Most importantly, the Obama victory has done a huge service to both parties. The pool of electable candidates has just increased because Obama has shown that a minority can win, and win big. By increasing the pool of possible candidates, our chances of getting the best person have now gone up a bit more. Having been limited to white guys has actually done our country a disservice, and Obama's victory has put an end to that. It is a historic victory, and something we are all better off for, whether we agree with his policies or not.
Now excuse me while I go work on my tax sheltering skills.
