It is rather simple. Regardless of the results of the election the overall course of America won't be shifted. Rather than fundamental issues about America, free markets, and the roll of government we simply have two different sides of the very same coin. Romney, backed by the major banking interest back east, who despite heavily donating to Obama back in 2008 have turned against him to support one of their own. And Obama, backed by educational, media, and technological elite, who will continue to back the sitting president, as his green and progressive policies have heavily benefited them. I especially think Jon Kotkins comparison to this trifecta of progressive elites as the clerisy, the description of which is very apt.
