    Yes, except your average voter from the population above (“Americans”) probably yet:

    – couldn’t identify his European peer’s nation on a map.

    – lives in a State with an active DOMA.

    – and is unconvinced the environment is a real issue.

    The election is good news, but I feel we are far off from being excused.

    from Krugman:

    “Two years ago, people were talking about permanent right-wing dominance of American politics. But since then the American people have gotten a clearer sense of what rule by movement conservatives means.

    They’ve seen the movement take us into an unnecessary war, and botch every aspect of that war.

    They’ve seen a great American city left to drown;

    they’ve seen corruption reach deep into our political process;

    they’ve seen the hypocrisy of those who lecture us on morality.”

    And they just said no.”
