Its going to be a lot better

There is one sentiment I have detected as being dominant across every group, every ideological bastion and every individual that I have interacted with. That an Obama-vs-McCain election is a good thing. Because even if one guy wins, the other side won't mind it that much, nor will it threaten to move to Canada. Remember, I rarely talk to extremist nuts from either side. So there is this feeling of wholesomeness around the election. A sense of satisfaction that finally, after lord knows how many years, the American public can actually choose the best among the two, instead of the least worst of the two.

And after years of divisive campaigns, it is sort of strangely pacifying to know that a vast majority of the country would not mind either a President McCain or a President Obama.
