Ebullient conservatives

Mickey Kaus writes:

Conservatives I’ve met in D.C. so far have been near-ebullient, not downcast or bitter. Why? a) They know how unhappy they’d be now if McCain had won; b) Obama has not fulfilled their worst fears, or even second-to-worst fears; c) now they can be an honest, straight-up opposition.

I can relate to all three of those feelings.  Still, “near-ebullient” would be an exaggeration. (I suppose that could be because I’m not really a conservative.)
