The Morning After
By Ben Pershing
It's now The Morning After, and we are being treated to one last (hopefully) burst of armchair psychoanalysis of the relationship between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama -- the vanquished and the victor, the secretary and the boss, two foes forced to live together and make it work. It all sounds like a sitcom, except for the part where we're fighting two wars, terrorism is on the march and the country has been in recession for a year.
Back in the non-personality-driven world (scratch that, Sarah Palin is involved), one of two remaining undecided Senate seats will be awarded after today's runoff election in Georgia. Two final surveys of the contest released Monday showed Saxby Chambliss leading Jim Martin by 7 and 4 points, though runoffs and special elections are notoriously difficult to poll because turnout is so uncertain.
Continuing the television theme, the Georgia race has featured more special guest stars than an episode of the Love Boat, with Palin and John McCain, among others, coming in for Chambliss and a host of prominent Democrats (even Ludacris!) working to boost Martin. Notably absent from the scene has been Obama himself -- first prize goes to the reporter who can convincingly reveal why -- though many of his campaign veterans have been on the ground in the Peach State.
