Presidential elections are made for the political scribes, giving them material for years. One of the more interesting ones was in Time magazine, issue of Nov. 19. It was fairly balanced and comprehensive.

There are comments worth repeating. For instance, the story said the candidates for president spent not millions but billions “yet somehow, fairly or unfairly, both candidates wound up looking a bit undersized.” The story also said the results showed that President Obama “is a mortal again, having received roughly 9 million fewer votes than he won in 2008.” But in the next line it praised Obama as being a “very crafty, very skilled mortal, politically speaking: Obama figured out how to leverage a thumping victory from relative weakness.” Good insight.
