I would like to be Nate Silver. At least for the next few days and do the victory laps. Punditry has been punked and Mathematics / Science have triumphed. Thank you Nate.
And Congratulations Mr. O!! If your 2008 victory was energizing and emotional, the 2012 one was a lot of relief and a bit emotional. I was nervous for the first hour. By 9 PM Eastern, I started feeling confident. And finally when I heard the speech at 2 AM (incidentally, my 8 year old son stayed up to watch the same), I felt the same kind of energy I felt in 2008.
I am glad that country doesn’t have to put up with someone who is as flip-floppy as Romney is and more importantly not led by some right wing nut job.
