The cars have not stopped honking since the polls closed in California two hours ago. Robb and I are giggling and drinking champagne. We've read this this election had the largest voter turn out (percentage of population?) since women got the vote.
Barack Obama is going to move into a beautiful house that has been trashed by its current occupants. He's got a huge amount to do to untangle the mess he's inheriting.
But if he can continue to harness the energy that he has inspired, and continues to be as smart and disciplined as he has proven himself to be, if he continues to work with a team of brilliant advisers, and if he can live the rhetoric of unity that he has been espousing, I think we all can all be hopeful.
