Obama is giving his victory speech. There are several smiling faces here at the Wyoming Union; several faces with tears and many staring at the TV screens with a sense of wonderment.
Even my skeptical and cynical friend (and frequent political consultant) Pinto T. Ellsworth muttered "he's an amazing speaker" a few moments ago. I gave a brief invited speech which will be played on this weekend's show. All in all it's a thoughtfully happy night here for Democrats, an unhappy one for Republicans, and an interesting but uncertain one for progressive independents and those left of the Democratic Party.
