Since I began—er, created—The God Blog in March 2007, the presidential race has been the single-greatest contributer of blog fodder. It began, I believe, with Tommy Thompson’s comment about how Jews love their money and, quite possibly though not likely, ended this morning with my coverage of Jewish reaction to Barack Obama’s election. Coverage of the presidential race will, at least, wind down over the next few days as I purge out every last thought on Nov. 4 and every post I wanted to get to before that day.
The end of a two-year campaign is a bit liberating for me, and should allow me to blog more about religious developments, rather than chiefly religion on the campaign trail. And, if I find myself at too much of a loss, well, I’ve only got to survive another two years before the fun begins again.
