Who else wishes they could relive the sheer excitement of November 4, 2008?
Advertisements [?]
Leaving my house knowing that from the few early results that Obama was winning South Carolina of all places, even though I knew it wouldn't last. Arriving at the election party and seeing Obama ahead by over 100 EVs and knowing it was now a matter of not if, but when. Being taunted by a McCain supporter and telling her "Laugh all you want, you know your guy is going to lose." And of course, the moment when I saw "Barack Obama elected 44th POTUS" at the bottom of the screen in yellow letters and hearing an explosion of cheers and happiness all around me. And knowing it was a moment I helped bring about by filling in a circle on a paper ballot.

Truly a night I won't soon forget.
