On a day when everyone is edgy about how the election will turn out, can I suggest that whatever the outcome it reflects a certain gain for American tolerance? Who would have thought a decade or two ago that the 2012 presidential election would be between a black man and a Mormon? Isn't that worth celebrating as a step toward tolerance?

Not when you consider the tolerance for the Mormon might be because his opponent is a black man.  Just a thought.

It would have been more memorable if the election had been fought on substantive issues instead of on non (but guaranteed to get a raise out of party extremists) issues.
 
It would, if the other candidate wasn't using his religious beliefs to spread intolerance.
 
I think you're trying to put lipstick on a pig here. This election season has been remarkably intolerant, IMO.
