The pants-pissing fear in the Republican ranks is palpable. Predictable McCain is predictable.
It's going to be interesting to see Obama play the (R) party like a fiddle the next 4 years. The only real question is what does Obama want, and how much can the (R) bend over and take it rectally to give it to him.
(R) Party needs to be burned to the ground, and reuilt under new people, new ideas and a new direction with a new focus abandoning social conservatives to the fringe where they belong. Social Conservativism (i.e. religious-based social policy of bigotry and imposed morals) is dead as dog**** as a meaningful political ideology that can win elections in the United States.
