Yes We Did

5 Nov

Grant Park, Tonight

There’s a couple of nailbiters left (the full slate of California propositions, the House race up in Washington State, the curiosity factor of whether Obama will add North Carolina to his column, truly vindicating the 50-State strategy), but the main race is over and the impossible happened. Tomorrow, the real work begins. January 20, the work really begins.

In the meantime, we get to think of how this changes language. Two generations ago, anything was possible if we put a man on the moon. One generation ago, anything was possible if we could put a black man in the white house. What now? What’s our new phrase? What’s impossible?

Up the bike punx

UPDATE: Darcy Burner won the House race referred to above. Congratulations are in order.
