Things to come

A very important day. I was thinking of Shakespeare's sonnet 107:
Not mine own fears, nor the prophetic soul
Of the wide world dreaming on things to come...

Shame he was talking about the crowning of James 1, who was an arse.

I genuinely think this is the most important election of my lifetime, even including the disastrous 1979 election which brought Thatcher in. And I think this one will go the right way, for once.

Do you think we'll look back on today and think 'Big deal, it wasn't that much of a change?' I think the importance of today's result can never be dismissed in those terms, whatever Obama does next, because the importance isn't tied to what Obama might achieve, it's about avoiding the alternative, which could be bad beyond anything we've seen yet.

Good luck America.
