-    RACE.  Years of overt and covert racism failed to prevent the President's re-election.  Is the country post-racial yet?  Hardly.  But people who agree with what Bill O'Reilly means when he says, "it's not a traditional America anymore," are part of a slowly contracting minority

Some scales have fallen from some eyes, but the country still suffers from many chronic delusions.  Probably the most dangerous is the near hysterical fear of Iran having a nuclear weapon.  We also remain deluded about the efficacy of nuclear weapons generally, as well as the rationality of nuclear power.  And we still imagine that we're so exceptional that we can -- and should -- work our will anywhere we want in the world.  Even if we could, it wouldn't be a good idea. 

The totality of the election was not a victory so much as an escape from defeat.  But there were enough smaller, real victories across the country to make the larger victory seem almost possible again.
