We're the ones we've been waiting for

Give Barack Obama his due: he nailed it with that prediction, though we had to wait two years for it to be fulfilled. Was there ever such a rebuke of a sitting president and his party? (Perhaps more the party than the president.) Even New Hampshire, once a totem of the GOP but in recent years a bastion of Good Thinking as refugees poured in from Massachusetts, has returned to the Republican fold--for its Washington delegation. We returned a Democrat to the state house, and my home district returned six Democrats to the thundering herd of our state legislature. There's a message in that: not yet does the United States have a two-party system with the Tea Party on the right and the Republicans on the left. Blue skies! -- Dan Ford
