President Barack Obama won re-election Tuesday night and whether or not that makes you happy, we can probably still agree we’re glad the campaign is finally over.
I was stunned when I heard the news. Actually missed it at first. Still had the Comedy Network on. When I flipped back to CNN, the projection had been posted. Obama had won. Still hard to believe. I was prepared for days of counting and wrangling over ballots. But now, several hours later, there seems to be no doubt. Even the popular vote is coming around to an Obama victory.
What a relief. It’s all over, and over in a single evening. The people have spoken. Obama will lead us for four more years. Tomorrow we can finally put this horrid campaign behind us and get back to work.
