If I was to characterize this election, I would say the people are sending a very clear message: They are sick of extremists and sick of gridlock. IMO, the Right in Washington is just going to ignore it.
Really? I don't think the results say that at all. Obama will run up a good count in the electoral college, but the popular vote total is almost a split, while the House remains solidly in Rep hands, Dems gain in the Senate and Reps gain another governor (maybe 2 more as those are still to close to call).
Take all of that together and it sounds like people voted for gridlock, a continuation of the last 2 years.
