For the first time in a long time, the country will have adult supervision.

Congratulations to everyone who wanted this as much as I did.

To those who didn't, take it from a guy who's backed a lot of losing horses - you will survive, the country will go on, and the world will continue to spin. I guarantee, Obama is not as good as his supporters think or as bad as his detractors suspect.

But I think he's what we need.

The pile of ordure he's inheriting is so deep that I can't imagine why anyone would want the office, but I'm glad there are some men and women willing to step up, grab the wheel and try to steer this thing out of the ditch.

But let's think about that tomorrow. Today, my face hurts from smiling so much.

If you want something political to chew over, chew over this. Just how bad did George Bush, Dick Cheney and the GOP leadership have to be before a black man named Barack Hussein Obama could win in a landslide over a genuine war hero.

That's bad, people. That's bad on an olympic scale of bad.

I'm off on a corporate team-building retreat (oh joy) for three days, so the Planet will be dark for a while.

Play nice.

As I have said before, I voted for McCain, but I feel kind of happy today. Obama wants higher taxes, he wants national health care, he wants other things I disagree with, but I think he will be a good president and I'm looking forward to the next four years.

Thanks, Graham, for coming over to the Planet and keeping us honest.
