Silver linings

To the editor:

To you liberals who are grieving because the election was not the way you wanted it to be, let me say I know how you feel.

I felt the same way when the Clintons were elected and re-elected.

I lived in Arkansas for a period of time when they occupied the governor's mansion and I knew the kind of people they were.

When the Clintons moved into the White House with 43 percent of the vote I was disappointed, but I attributed their election to the ignorance of those who voted for them; they surely didn't realize what they were doing.

However, when they were re-elected with 49 percent, ignorance could no longer be an excuse; stupidity had to be the reason. Disappointment is an understatement of how I felt about that election.

There is a silver lining to your cloud of anguish and that is, for four more years, you will have Bush to bash and, for some of you, that appears to be the only life you have.

But take heart dear liberals, what goes around comes around and four years from now we conservatives may be dismayed because of the election results.

Due to the fact that a large percentage of Americans cast their votes based on looks, style and personality rather than substance, the Clintons -- God help us -- may be the presidents-elect.
