Well, the mid-term elections are just about over and the "Other" party is taking over from the one that was in power. I suggest you don't get too excited as I recall some years ago when the parties were reversed. Many of us thrilled at the promise to "clean up the mess in washington!"
But it never happened. Not long in office, the "cleanup" party was indistinguishable from the dethroned.
Lord Acton was absolutely correct when he made the observation that a person's sense of morality lessens as his or her power increases.
Might as well relax and enjoy it.
