A New Day

It's 5:51 A.M. here, and I watched non-stop election coverage on the BBC for over 6 hours tonight.

My thoughts are far too scattered - and frankly, I'm too tired - to say anything thoughtful right now. But the Americans and British watching tonight were ecstatic to see this outcome - British people were telling us "Congratulations!" and were genuinely happy. 

I have to get a few hours of sleep now - but first, a few words to get used to in the next few days:

President. Elect. Obama.

Can you believe it?
