"This doesn’t mean it’s going to be easy ... smooth or fun, or make any sort of cohesive sense. ... But across the board and down the line, the take on Obama’s astonishing, historic re-election is the same: America is more wildly, unexpectedly diverse than ever, and those diverse voices -- Latino, gay, black, immigrant, female, et al -- somehow coalesced into a potent, vociferous, albeit hotly unstable coalition to vote more powerfully and more passionately than any time in our short history, mostly because they never really existed as a functioning coalition in our short history, until now. This is what the Republican punditry and even many old-timer Dems are coming to terms with." (11/14/12)
