Well, at least the electioneering is over. I guess half the country is on suicide watch. Though which half we do not yet know. Analysts here are saying that if it’s close enough, it could be several weeks before we know who the next president of the United States is going to be in 2013.
If you need an upside to all the angst and anguish, some voters over here in Britain are saying that they envy the US voter. At least, they say, we have a real choice between a fiscal conservative and a social liberal. They think the two main parties are too much the same over here.
I don’t quite see it that way in either country, but I do agree there’s a discernible difference between Obama & Romney. My own dilemma was to choose the candidate I disagreed with less.
Maybe I’m merely suffering from the realism of getting old. Nobody is going to give us Shangri-la.
This is the human condition, for heavens’ sake. Even in the land where you can become president if you are born in a log cabin.
