The Winners (and Losers) of Election '08

Who came out on top, and who did not.
WINNERS:



The Davids - Axelrod and Plouffe: they spearheaded a near flawless campaign.



Katie Couric: her multi-part interview with Sarah Palin was the turning point in how the country saw Palin -- and by extension John McCain. And she did it in a way that left no room for accusations of being unfair or playing "Gotcha!"



Colin Powell, Scott McClellan, Ken Adelman, Chris Buckley, Kenneth Duberstein, et al: crossing party lines to endorse the eventual winner can't hurt the rep.



Saturday Night Live: went from "Is that still on?" to Must See TV (or, at least, Must See on YouTubeTV)



Tina Fey: her take on Palin was pitch perfect; a comedy mugging for the ages. And with Palin's obvious weight loss during the campaign, she ended up looking more and more like her 30 Rock doppelganger.



Sarah Palin: lost an election but there has to be a reality show in her future.



Michelle Obama: smarts, grace, style, charm, and a serious "good mommy" vibe -- she's got the whole package.



The View: went from gal chat to political headline maker.



MSNBC: Keith, Rachel, Chris... they sent a collective tingle went up the leg of progressive viewers everywhere.
