If I've understood correctly many republicans differ somewhat in their opinions. Also increased power of a party means more incentive to fight for
position within the ranks. Both of these factors will likely make the needle less sharp, so to say.
It's also possible that foreign relations will suffer somewhat, but if I understood correctly from the comments of the republican ATS-posters they
don't care about rest of the world (or at least they don't care about any foreign opinion about the elections). If they keep "don't care"-policy
up to the party level it's not a problem since if US don't mess with the rest of the world rest of the world doesn't mess with US and adverse
effects are avoided. But if Bush starts pushing conservative and anti-science agendas globally then it should be remembered that capacitor can't be
charged without the plates getting polarized...
But yes I don't expect american enviromentalists to be very happy right now. It's also possible that US science suffers somewhat. European
pharmaceutics company recruiters, especially in UK, are probably celebrating their brains out at this very moment. Ironically it was an american who
once said: "Brains, like heart, go where they are appreciated" (Robt. McNamara).
