Upsides

At least we won't have to spend the next four years listening to how stupid, evil, and mendacious the President of the United States is.

And Obama's election has improved the perception of the United States in the world (particularly in "Old Europe")--and since Obama is unlikely to upset the UN/EU consensus, that diplomatic capital may be useful to the next Republican administration.

I also hope that with the bogeyman of Evil Bush gone, it will be more acceptable to differ from the liberal orthodoxy in polite company.

Obama can't run on Change and Hope again - he'll need to run on results. And perhaps the Republicans will get their act together and nominate an electable, real conservative in the next election.
