Birth Of The Cool: Congratulations, President-Elect Barack Obama

Now, the real work begins.

On a personal note (due more to voter turnout than result), my faith in the American people has been vindicated, and for the first time in my adult life, I am really proud of my country.

Now that felt good.

Random teevee observations (hey, I don't watch much):

Chris Matthews, after interviewing disgraced House Leader and rainmaker Tom Delay (why, oh why put this hollow soul on the teevee?): "Sir, I love the way you hate."

Bret Hume, upon receiving cookies from Karl Rove, "They look like Baccarat chips." Chris Wallace (paraphrasing), perhaps betraying his Everyman delusion, "I wouldn't know that." Bret looks slightly startled at this, and betrays a rather sheepish grin after repeating his thanks.

Eugene Robinson: "It feels... different... to be an American tonight."
