Musings on Election Day

I marvel at America sometimes.

A lawyer from Illinois, imbued with radiant personal charm and natural charisma but virtually no political experience (save two years in Washington) and only a short time in the national spotlight, gets elected to the highest office in the land (defeating a powerful senator with two other unsuccessful presidential bids under his belt) during one of the most turbulent eras in our nation's history.

But enough about Abraham Lincoln... =)

Let's hope the coincedences end there. For example, no secretaries named Kennedy, thank you very much.
