For Newsweek columnist and novelist Joe Klein, the bottom line of last week's election was this: "There are problems in America, but no crisis."
Sixty years ago Franklin D. Roosevelt, in his second inaugural address, said, "I see one-third of a nation ill-housed, ill-clad, ill-nourished." FDR saw a crisis, and he was right--but he added, "It is not in despair that I paint you that picture. I paint it for you in hope--because the Nation, seeing and understanding the injustice of it, proposes to paint it out."
