This is most of the last paragraph of an essay on the Obama win by Don Watson (Paul Keating's speechwriter)....

>It might have signaled the end of the Vietnam war, and not just for John McCain. Those people for whom Vietnam created an oedipal crisis that only Ronald Reagan could solve are now going grunting into retirement or jail; or, like George W Bush to some barren corner of the country where they can commune with God and ghost their memoirs. The game is over. Their enemies, the baby-booming liberals, might crow for awhile, but they must know their days are darkening too. Of all the pleasurable sensations Obama's victory and glorious victory speech provoked - the blind will no longer lead the blind, sentences will be whole again and truth will reign in them (.....) - this was the best: we don't have to listen to the sounds of our own generation any more.

How cool is that?
