Election Postmortem - Obama Wins Barack Obama will be the next president. In his speech last night, Obama spoke of unifying the country to face the challenges ahead. Soon we'll find out if he's able to do that. We'll talk about Obama's victory and the new colors across the nation's electoral map. We'll find out what made the difference in Ohio and what his victory means for the future of the nation and the state. We'll also talk about McCain's loss, what missteps were made, and what's next for the Mavericks. We'll also look at outcomes in congressional races across Ohio, how ballot issues fared, and the future of the Ohio General Assembly. Join us for conversation and analysis of the election results, Wednesday morning at 9.




Joe Frolik, Editorial Board, The Plain Dealer
David Cohen, Associate Professor of Political Science, Ray C. Bliss Institute of Applied Politics at The University of Akron
