We saw some history in the making tonight, not only nationally but also here in Oklahoma.
Obviously, the election of Barack Obama has historical ramifications that can’t be understated. The dramatic way in which he won states that had long been GOP strongholds spoke volumes about how much of the nation was ready for a switch.
Not so in Oklahoma. Not only did Oklahoma voters choose John McCain in overwhelming numbers, but those same voters decided to give control of the state Senate — and by default, the Legislature — to the Republicans. At no time in state history has this happened, and it will likely make for an interesting couple of legislative sessions for Gov. Brad Henry. He’ll be the lone check on the GOP’s legislative agenda for the next two years.
