Gridlock can be a wonderful thing. Most Americans love their country just fine the way it is. There are things we would reform, but only around the edges. President Barack Obama is reelected, but U.S. House Speaker John Boehner is also returned.
That's two losses in a row for former U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. She should exit stage left. U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid should also go, but through the grace of God and the gift of bad Republican candidates forfeiting easy wins, Harry retains his majority. Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, exit stage right, please.
Does this election solve any of our self-created problems? No, but the message from America is to get on with it. We're not going back to the squandered hopes and dreams of 2008, or 2010, we're going forward!
