Yes, Obama. What a thrill.

What was your voting experience like? Oh my goodness, I voted under the wire. Toby went to bed, Alex got home, and I literally ran to our polling site at 8:55pm. People on the streets were yelling, “You can make it!!!” Later, as we were following the election results on TV, we could see the Empire State Building from our window and watched as the blue line rose higher and higher.

Obama’s speech was fantastic. More great photos here. And remember this shot?

How do you feel about his win?
