Today we look at some of the results of the US elections. It was no referendum on President Obama or the Democrats, but there was a bit of a one against extremists who were trying to purge the Republican Party of moderates. We also take a look at the referenda in Maine, along with the implications of the much more positive results from Kalamazoo, Michigan and Washington state. We also talk about some of the bigger issues and trends, and that even the loss in Maine is as dire as it may seem to some—though Arthur thinks there are some threats arising from it.
