Just want to say I'm happy about the election result
The "Igloochic for Governor" thread got a little mean-spirited. Now that the election is over, I just want to say that I am happy about the result and looking forward to moving forward! Though I defended Palin in that thread, I ended up voting for Obama for a variety of reasons. As I said in the thread, I was undecided and thought we were lucky to have two good candidates this year.
And though I don't think Palin was ready to be President, overall I think she did really well! It's very hard to be in the spotlight like that with journalists trying to trip you up, and I think she can walk away with her head held high.
Now I'm just hoping that Obama will govern from the middle and not turn us into France without the excellent food and culture.
