While there's not much silver lining in today's election prospect for a liberal such as myself, there are a few interesting wrinkles.
The Rally to Restore Sanity was fairly successful-- 200,000 people, regardless what some conservative pundits are saying. Hopefully it will help to, well, restore sanity.

BTW: 538 is Nate Silver's political analysis blog. I heartily recommend it to every one.
