The election will either go to Obama or Romney. Either way, I'm going to try hard to oppose all the blame-storming to come.
During the long campaigning the politics has become very factional and increasingly bitter, with eager intolerance of the other side and all their motives.
I'm expecting the election result (whichever way) to be a trigger for unleashing all of that, again. Once the election's done, gloves are off, there's no reason to fear offending a potential swing voter any more.
Anyway...I plan to try to NOT fall into that trap.
Also, I remember the Republicans bemoaning their choices during the primaries and being forced to settle for Romney...so if someone has legitimate reasons for preferring aspects of conservative politics (such as 'fiscal conservative' stuff), I won't lay all of their candidate's sins and past failings at the supporter's feet. Same for Obama and Romney and their respective flaws and track records.
Either way this goes, if America's people are working together the country can recover. If it's just over half of the country following their president and almost half fighting them and trying to hold them back...then no-one is going anywhere.
Let's see what happens; and let's try to end the sectarian battles, regardless of who wins?
