Hooray!

Hooray for the American electorate, who cast a strong vote for accountability, fairness, rationality, science and fact yesterday. The past few years have given me cause to wonder whether these things mattered any more. Now, it is clear that they matter a lot.

I am certainly not gloating about this moment, because the problems the country faces are so formidable. But part of me will be smiling when President Bush meets the people whom he has described as appeasers, defeatists, terrorist lovers, cut-and-runners and haters of freedom and America. How in the world will he be able to work with these "enemies of the people" who now control the agenda in Washington? How will he be able to face the American people, who put these terrible people in office despite his fervent pleas that they be defeated? That will be enormously interesting.

To paraphrase that old Cold Warrior-turned-peacemaker, it's morning in America today.
