Hope Wins-Now What?


1. Don't swear. 2. Don't talk about Wendy's commercials. 3. Don't talk politics. When I was asked to cover for the Adrants crew this week, I had three goals, and well, one out of three ain't bad. Why change now! ViA out of Portland, Maine has put together a post-election campaign to keep people talking about it all. Several buildings in NYC have large wraps on them with large tag-like phrases that were dominant throughout the campaign. They also put up a website for the effort called the watercooler and a video to go along with it all. A Borat VERY NICE! for the effort.

On a related note, everyone will feel about this election the way they will. Have no illusions that the U.S. is suddenly 'united' just because a candidate says so. McCain probably wouldn't have been able to pull it off, and maybe Barack won't either, because there's still a lot of deeper things at work, but damn, it was a special night. We're a divided country and let's leave it at that. Some of the more striking things from this week that I remember though seemed to transcend words: The image of Jesse Jackson or one of the in-studio commentators on Fox just about getting the words out as his voice trembled.

Feel free to share your thoughts either at the water cooler or below in the comments.
