So, a confession. Readers who’re convinced that my dislike for President Bush automatically makes me a Democrat anyway will probably be unsurprised by this, but I think I just had the first experience of genuine solidarity with a major-party electoral victory of my adult life. On the way home from watching the results, in a car evenly split between tipsy Dems and liberatarians, Fleetwood Mac’s song “Don’t Stop Thinking About Tomorrow,” Clinton’s theme song for the 1992 DNC, came on the radio. And we all had a big sing-along.
Of course, this enthusiasm will probably last for about a week of the 110th Congress, at which point I’ll have to find new friends. But it was a nice moment.
