Get this: After tonight, we will see 17 to 21 new senators, meaning at least 40 out of the 100 members will be first-term senators after tonight. We’re going to see as many as 30 new governors. And we’ll probably get 80 to 100 new members of Congress. This is truly the big-picture story no one is talking about — how we’re set for the biggest year of political transition in recent memory.
The volatility of politics is a sure sign that people are waking up to the need for deep reform and doing… well, something. Whether it’s the right thing is yet to be seen.
