thoughtful. entertaining. random.

what a night!

Much more to be said once I get some sleep.

Canvassing in Virginia was good – and Obama won both the state and the county where I volunteered!

And Obama won the presidency by running an active race in all 50 states, showing that the only way to win is to show up. Howard Dean and Bill Bradley deserve a lot of credit for refocusing the Democratic party on rebuilding local party organizations and getting out the vote all over the place, even in traditionally inhospitable locales.

And the street party in downtown DC was simply incredible: we ended up driving home in the middle of an exuberant, giddy convoy, with horns honking, high fives, cheers and smiles all around. It’s as if a great weight had been lifted off the shoulders of DC, and folks were celebrating the liberation.

A good day, and a good night.
