President Bush says something apt about the election. He also admits: "I think it was a repudiation of Republicans, and I'm sure some people voted for Barack Obama because of me."
Put me in the category of Obama voters who wanted him -- and not McCain -- in my living room for the next 4 years explaining policy. Actually, that sounds hilariously boring, Obama going on and on in his professorial way, but that's okay. We could use something mellow and soothing. Not too soothing, but fluid, coherent, and confidence inspiring.
