Letting it All Sink In

Now that the reality of Obama's election is starting to sink in, people are contemplating what it means. Here in New Orleans, letter writers to The Times-Picayune are complaining that his election means we're in for a radical redistribution of wealth (duhhhh).'s "War Room" asked a number of writers and bloggers "What Does Obama's Victory Mean?", and not surprisingly, the answers are more provocative and nuanced than that. My favorite:

It means the 9/11 era -- of dealing with the world 9/11 created rather than using 9/11 as a political club -- has finally begun.
-- Brad DeLong, economics professor, UC-Berkeley
