Not That I Think This Is Wrong, But

I think it is kind of rich for the Wall Street Journal to suddenly embrace "bipartisanship". The best line is this one:
Put simply, as Peggy Noonan said on this page last Saturday, 43%, the absolute minimum expected size of the Republican vote, isn't nothing. It would be a profound mistake to underestimate the desire of the electorate for bipartisanship, conciliation and a centrist approach to problem-solving.
Funny, I don't remember them telling George Bush to take the 49.99 percent of the vote of 2000 (of Gore and Nader) into consideration when making policy. The prospect of losing power does some damned odd things, neh?
