I'd like to hit Cmd-Space, type my query, and then from the list, drag a file to my Desktop or my browser or whatever. The best I have is that with the file highlighted, I can hit Cmd-I and then drag the preview.

click the item in the Spotlight list. This will reveal the item in a Finder. From there you can drag the file wherever you wish.
