    Nope. After the election we go deep into the land of Alternate Realities.

    it will ease back some, but it's sure to remain. I would cite opposition behavior during second terms of Clinton and Bush. this assumes Obama prevails. should he lose, I expect Romney will receive similar venom. we live in a very partisan period in American history.

    Do you mean on DP, or in general? No matter. Either way, the answer is no. The political hacks have picked their team, and will continue to root for it regardless of what happens.

    You mean like they did after Obama was elected in 2008? Lots of luck with that one.

    It seemed like there could be discussions about issues more before the election got crazy. There was always fingerpointing and nonsense, but I think there's more now than there was when I first joined.
