A very polarized nation awaits Pres BO's second term

Pres BO won the election and we will once again be part of the loyal opposition. 

Yes, the GOP has to do better with Hispanics and Asians.  At the same time, let's not overreact to a very and very close election.

Jim Geraghty of National Review reminds us of just how close this election really was:

"On Wednesday, I added up Obama’s margin in a few key states, to get a sense of just how agonizingly short the Romney campaign finished from 270 electoral votes.

Some of those straggling precincts have reported, and so here is an updated set of numbers, according to the results this morning on the New York Timesresults map:
Florida: 73,858
Ohio: 103,481
Virginia: 115,910
Colorado: 113,099
Those four states, with a collective margin of, 406,348 for Obama, add up to 69 electoral votes. Had Romney won 407,000 or so additional votes in the right proportion in those states, he would have 275 electoral votes.
Obama’s margin in some other key states:
Nevada: 66,379
Iowa: 88,501
New Hampshire: 40,659
At this hour, 120,556, 279 votes for Obama and Romney have been counted nationwide."

This election came down to 407,000 votes out of 120 million!

I am not very good in math but that's a very close election.
