Will An Obama America Be an End to the Culture Wars?

Since the 1970s,  and with accelerated pace throughout the '80s and '90s,  the liberal vs conservative,  independent clashing of cultures has ruled the day throufgh media,  particularly within  talk radio and the blogoshpere.  Obama,  throughout his campaign,  stressed a need for "one America"  and "unity";  "divisiveness"  was one of the purjrative terms he aimed at McCain.  One wonders if the man himself will indeed be able to bring about that change and unity which were the watchwords of his smoothly run election machine,  or if,  rather,  the times themselves,  along with the inevitable generational power shifts of this era,  will be the catalyst for such badly-needed transformation.
