1.03.2008 | Victory of reason (redux)
Sanity prevailed over fear in the midterm elections. This time idealism is king. The come-from-behind victories of the aw-shucks governor from Arkansas and the skinny kid with Kenyan roots (not to mention the second-place finish of the son of a millworker) are signs that the country is ready not only for change, but for humble leadership. For the first time in about seven years, I have hope for the country.
