Breathing a little easier

There's a lot that could be said here. I'm finding the political tea leaves fascinating -- reading Bush's surprisingly relaxed body language leads to all kinds of interesting speculation, and I'll be very curious to see how long he and Pelosi manage to continue the pleasant facade at each other. (I would *love* to know what's going on in the White House: the next few months will tell us a lot about what's really been going on behind the scenes for the past six years.)

But really, the important statement is: thank you to all of you who voted. There's a palpable sense of having turned a crucial corner here. The next couple of years won't be *fun*, but they may see some real improvements in the situation.

The political environment affects the mood of the country in a thousand subtle ways. I dearly hope that the change at the top helps lift some of the miasma that's been hanging over everything in recent years...
