I know it's early, but things are not looking good. As I suspected, many conservatives are claiming the reason they lost this election is because they weren't conservative enough, while others (the few reasonable Republicans who are left) are claiming the opposite. This is going to be an interesting story to watch develop. I personally hope the religious nuts and the xenophobes break off to form another party, leaving the Republican with just the moderates. I think a move like that would actually help bring a lot of people who have left the party over the last decade or so back. But I'm not crossing my fingers. Power is seductive and the extremists still have a lot of power at the state level (30 governors).
