Well, Obama is now President-Elect. I shall prepare to complain about Democrats now instead of Republicans. I voted for him as "the lesser evil", and I don't share the rose-colored glasses of his ardent supporters...

In other election news, Nebraska voted comfortably and predictably Republican (unless Lee Terry gets unseated, which I find unrealistic). I do wholeheartedly support Johanns as the Senator, he is a great guy and was a good Governor (though his successor, his former Leutenant Governor Heineman, is a lot more popular). So again we have one Democratic and one Republican Senator. And all three Republican Representatives. Strange that liberal Lincoln area, which voted for Obama, also voted for Republican Representative 70%... Though it could be explained by the fact that his Democratic opponent was a Russian-born 26-year old guy, someone Max Yashirin. I would vote for Fortenberry too, in such a situation.

Nebraska also voted overwhelmingly to repeal Affirmative Action, and I am very proud of them for that.

New Jersey, on the other hand, voted just as comforbably and predictably Democrat for President and Senator, and there is a healthy mix of both parties in the House of Representatives (though all incumbents were given a vote of confidence, that's encouraging). It's funny how the county where I live voted 60% for Obama, the county where I work voted 52% for Obama, and the county where most of my co-workers live voted 56% McCain... Not unexpected, though.
