Good Morning, Mr. President

The most pressing issue facing the new President: What are they going to name the dog?

Election night prediction: I told Liam earlier in the evening that I would probably start getting choked up at 11:05 PM EST. I was wrong. I started fighting back the tears at 11:06, as I listened to Congressman John Lewis, the civil rights leader, discussing on NBC the historic nature of Obama's victory.

Cheesy victory song

And the man whose spirit filled the evening. . .

I am still amazed at what we've done.

Great cheesy celebration song.

Bah, I lost it when John Lewis started to tear up. :) It was over for me, when I saw Jesse Jackson crying.

Yeah, the image of Jackson will be long-remembered, I think.

Very powerful evening.
