Some good post-election posts

Ampersand has probably the best post-election post out there. Here's an excerpt:

In 1986, Ronald Reagan won re-election, and the world seemed pretty hopeless. Look at all that's happened since then - not all good, but real progress has been made. Not all of the next twenty years will be good, either - but that doesn't mean that we can't move forward a lot between now and 2024.

Read the rest, a little cautious optimism is better than no optimism at all.

In a similar vein, Josh Marshall reminds Democrats not to give up our newfound organizational strength, just because it failed to get a Democrat elected after 24 months.

In the meanwhile, August Pollak reminds us who Bush's constitiency really is. My favorite line:

For one thing, this "Bush recieved more votes in any election" line is kind of silly, considering the person who recieved the second-largest amount of votes in any presidential election, if I'm not mistaken, was John Kerry. The attempt to cast Bush's 1%-in-Ohio victory as a Reagan revolution is laughable.

So enjoy.
