David Broder Thinks Lisa Murkowski Should Be President Or Something
"I think that's what voters are looking for. I don't think that most are looking for somebody that is going to follow the litmus test of one party or another, and never deviate from it. I think they want us to think, and I think they want us to work cooperatively together. So, that's my pledge to all Alaskans, regardless of whether you are the most conservative Republican or the most liberal Democrat, I'm going to try to find a way that we can find common ground to help the state and to help our country."
Want to know what the election was about? That's an authoritative answer.

2) The overwhelming majority of voters who voted for Democrats in 2006 and 2008 voted for the party in 2010. The overwhelming majority of voters who voted for Republicans in 2006 and 2008 voted for the party in 2010. Number of voters who voted for David Broder's Everybody Should Get Along and Work Together Party? Zero.
But sure, old man! This election was all about some unremarkable comments this one senator said afterwords. The entire voting public told him so! RUN, LISA, RUN! [WP]
