"On cultural values, 11 states rose up against gay marriage, which had much to do with mobilizing the evangelical right."

I take exception to the above statement. You don't have to be on the evangelical right, whatever that is, to oppose homosexual marriage, whatever that is. The bottom line is most people don't really care what you do in your bedroom but don't ask them to legitimize it by giving it the sanctity and aura of social acceptance. Most Americans just plain think homosexuality is the antithesis of life and the life force and we believe it is wrong. The end.

I guess Safire's point is that when you get the majority you need to accomplish your goals you should immediately compromise them in order to get along and not seem like a bully. Yikes....

A lot of time, money and effort was wasted on this election if the pursuit of common ground is now the priority.

raising the retirement age to 70 for those now under 50

I wonder where people who espouse this think these elderly workers will be employed?  Most people over fifty who lose their job is this time of age discrimination are screwed.   Raising retirement to 70 will cost more in welfare and unemployment  than engaging Social Securiy and IRA drawdowns.

Funny, when Clinton won and he had all of congress, where were these guys then? Was there this outpouring of concern over it being lopsided?

Safire is a New York Times conservative. He's a reliable defender of Israel, but pretty shaky on everything else.

In particular, he has NO use for traditional moral values. He is strongly pro-abort.

Bush is NOT Safire's kind of conservative. I'm sure Saffire is very worried by what several analysts have already pointed out: that Bush was mainly elected because of what he stands for morally. Safire has no use for traditional religion or morality, Christian or Jewish.

Bush should offer a domestic cabinet post to Daschle . . .

Yeah, that was my first thought, too. Something like Secretary of Getting Down On All Fours and Barking Like a Doggie.
