“It wasn’t even close,” says JOHN NICHOLS at TheNation.com. John will talk about Obama’s two-million vote margin. John was MSNBC’s man in Ohio last night, reporting for Rachel Maddow & Co. from the Teamsters’ Hall in Toledo.
Also: TOM FRANK will talk about what Obama will do with his win: pursue “the grand bargain” and make a deal with Republicans to cut the budget. Tom’s new book, Pity the Billionaire, is out now in paperback.
And HAROLD MEYERSON will look at the Senate races, where Democrats triumphed across the board — and billionaires failed to put their candidates in office. Harold writes about politics for the Washington Post op-ed page and The American Prospect, where he is editor-at-large.
