Spinning, spinning, spinning...

5:10 PM election day.  There is some  indication that the Republicans may have some races tip in their favor.

The spin has already started.

The most read article on The Washington Post website is "Where did Obama go wrong?

One quote pretty much nailed it:

“If they’re (the Republicans) unwilling to move off their core principle, then they are unwilling to compromise, and nothing can get done,”   -White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer

This statement is pathological in more ways than I can discuss.  The most concise critique is to observe that statesmen craft legislation that is win-win for all major stakeholders.  Jamming bad legislation up the other party's tailpipe and breaking it off might be satisfying but it is not good government.
