As is frequently so, I found myself in high agreement with Christopher Hitchens. While Obama is the clear best choice in the election, it takes alot to believe that his charismatic personality is going to result in an immediate repulsion of all of America's enemies, the credit crisis and global warming. Many in the Moveon.org Left could find themselves disappointed.
It's also clear that the Republicans are going to be in the wilderness. There's a chance for them to relaunch. Taking advantage of the few superstar Republicans left, such as Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bobby Jindal and maybe even Dino Rossi and BJ Lawson if they win, would be a good idea.
