Quote of the Day

Had to lift this from James Taranto:

Two things were clear long before the votes were counted on Tuesday night: President Obama would face a Congress with more Republicans for his final two years in office, and the results would be seen as a repudiation of his leadership. But that was not the way Mr. Obama saw it. The electoral map was stacked against him, he argued, making Democrats underdogs from the start. And his own party kept him off the trail, meaning he never really got the chance to make his case. "You're in the Final Four," as one aide put it, "and you’re on the bench with a walking boot and you don't get to play." . . . Sagging in the polls and unwelcome in most competitive races across the country, Mr. Obama bristled as the last campaign that would influence his presidency played out while he sat largely on the sidelines. He privately complained that it should not be a judgment on him.”-- Peter Baker, New York Times, Nov. 5

Apparently, however, the president did campaign for one candidate: Illinois Governor Pat Quinn.

On the bright side, the First Lady's husband probably didn't mangle the candidate's last name... or mistake what office he was running for.
