* Will Obama turn out to have gained or lost votes by giving the generous-to-the-loser victory speech the day before the election?

* While The Economist, always hip to irrelevant trends in American politics, has a chin-scratcher on the "Obamacons" this week (did you know that Susan Eisenhower is a "big name" for conservatives?
