9. I'm the OP
I have very mixed emotions about this. Relief that a far right wingnut wasn't elected, and also the feeling that perhaps we could have done better against someone more extreme and with less $$$ and less popular appeal. Guilt sums it up best.

It's hard to know what the right thing is at times. Life is a gamble far too often.

Honestly, I don't think anyone short of a "superstar" of the caliber of Bill Clinton could have been elected Gov. of Michigan this year as a Democrat, and I don't know who in the state that would have been.

Bad year all around, and all we can do is work to make the future better.
