Brabantio: Thou art a villain.
Iago: You are a senator (Othello 1.i.117-8)
Iago's cynicism is easy. Imagine Othello as Duke: or Obama as Prez.
It's taken a while, but I'm so looking forward to seeing history change,

[Editor's Note: I am sorry I was not able to get this post out earlier. The
historical event has happened; and I, for one, am delighted and filled with a
sense of hope and pride that I have not felt in a long time. My hope for my
country is that my new president will govern in a manner that assists in healing
some of the wounds that exist among peoples in this country and those around the
world, transforming the United States in such a way that it regains the respect
it once held among the nations of this fragile world. Filled with hope, Hardy]
