A New Hope

In comments to Roger L. Simon's excellent piece Thanksgiving 2010: Is the American Dream Dying?, we read this:
Bill Lawrence:  I had a conversation with a 19-year-old theater major from a Pennsylvania college yesterday.
She said she and her theater-major friends think Obama has a plan to destroy America and hate his guts.
I attempted to defend 0 by pointing out my belief that he is merely a simple incompetent but she wasn’t buying it.
We are talking 19-year-old female theater major, people.

Whoa! Who woulda thunk?
Happy Thanksgiving to you and Mrs. Bearcat, especially as she has suffered such a loss as her Dad.

My first moment of real hope was when I heard a die-hard "liberal" Democratic acquaintance who believes in preferential policies for minorities and the redistribution of wealth talking about how he'd made a mistake voting for the President.

It wasn't for a great reason, mind you, but it's a really heartening feeling, knowing that the Democrats can't parlay hatred of Bush into a stable coalition.
