ELECTION OF '96|
It's over with few, if any, surprises being registered.
It's hard to believe that the American public really wants another four years of
Bill Clinton, but that's what they voted for. Or, it might seem so on the
might be that the voters elected to keep the Republicans in control of both
Houses of Congress. In fact, the GOP gained seats in the Senate. It might
actually be the best arrangement we could have hoped for.
Given what happened
over the past two years and the campaign rhetoric coming from Clinton, there
might actually be some hope of getting some constructive things done over the
remainder of this decade. Both sides will have to moderate their views to avoid
deadlock and this can't help but be a good thing. Extremism running rampant
leads to most of our problems. While both sides have their own corps of
special-interests in their respective corners, none proved strong enough to
influence the election this time around. In fact, the election might well be
categorized as a major loss for liberal Big Labor groups and also for the
Religious Right. Is the public finally getting tired of all the blustering and
self-righteousness? We can only hope so.
