I think our country will be worse for many reasons, and it would've been worse with Romney too.
The big one is just the constant pressure on US incomes to reach equilibrium with the Chinese/Indian/Indonesians. They still have too many people willing to do our jobs for pittances and our incomes have a long way to go down.
Reaching equilibrium will continue to be very painful for most Americans, especially the middle class.
Until we have leaders willing to confront these problems openly and aggressively, we are in a downward spiral.
