- Katrina happens under McCain's watch. It's a mess just like before, even with different folks in charge. "McCain doesn't like black people!" is exclaimed by Kanye West.
- Since McCain runs for re-election in 2008, Ron Paul never vies for the office. Thus the Tea Party, which was founded on frustration with the Bush administration's bad spending policies, never manifests. This means Tea Party candidate Allen West is never elected, reducing the number of African-American political leaders. Bachmann likewise does not get involved in the national scene, as do a number of other prominent women. (Young girls would still have Sailor Moon as a positive role model, at least.)
Sound about right?

An aside, would I be correct in seeing an event like this in utterly destroying the backing many white-supremacist and neo-nazi groups worldwide receive?

Any memo about any group or individual planning an attack would be followed up on slightly, and once they see Osama in their records as a fundamentalist with a bent against the US, they'd do their best to ferret him out.
2: This kind of disaster would also force the US to review it's disaster response plans, meaning that snags and snares in organizations like FEMA could be straightened out. Would things be faster and more efficient? Maybe.
3: Maybe the Tea Party didn't form. But the thing is that fringe government groups form in the US all the time, and the one who managed to shout the loudest would still get the national attention. In this case, though, it'd be from either left wingers who thought the US to be too harsh, or right wingers who think we aren't doing enough to prevent another disaster.

It puts a damper on them for a long time, at least. They're awfully resilient; even the Holocaust couldn't wipe them out entirely. They're like cockroaches that way.

Come to think of it, did she even get a name?

I don't mean groups like Hellsing, but already known groups, like Delta Force, Seal Team 6, and even regular front line units, like the National Guard.
How do first responders learn to deal with the undead? Are police trained to deal with arresting vampires? Do EMTs and firefighters learn to fight fires in ghoul infested structures?

How would each of the characters respond to the ending of Shine? I mean, even those who've died should more or less feel something about it since they won't even be appearing any more in strips that cut to what's going on in hell and/or heaven.

Why, is that a request, Ms. Ptah?
