That was the moment we knew.  When Ohio was called for Obama, he had 195 electoral votes, and with the near-certainty that IA, CA, OR, and WA would follow, he had 275 votes and the presidency.

No election in my life has moved me as much as this one.

Election Night

Now we’ve got what we wanted, and the real work starts — we’ve just handed Obama some of the worst national problems in recent history.  I can only wish him strength, good advice, and wisdom.

    Hey, I’m happy about that historic evening myself; but, are you REALLY celebrating with white zinfandel?

    *Gag* no! I’m not entirely sure what’s in Hamner’s glass there, but that isn’t it.

    Okay… maybe the light’s a little weird and it’s a whiskey.

    Anyway, happy map-looking and Happy Birthday! r
