Quite a night. It began with a blurb I'd written for Ezra Klein's blog being plucked up to the forefront--quite a high to be national. Then I ran to get our pizza, and we ate as state after state were called--Ohio! Who would have thought?
We clicked between Katie Couric on CBS and the PBS Newshour with occasional dabbling with Gibson/Brokaw on NBC (very little on ABC, in spite of having Cokie Roberts). Just after California (and other West Coast polls closed) her assistant to the right held up a picture of the garbage strikers holding signs I Am A Man, and told a story about his mother. I teared up at that story as well as the history of this event.
As I listened to John McCain's speech, I was quite teary. It was a brilliant and emotional speech and I remembered why I like him so much. Wonderful, thoughtful.
An emotional night.
Wish I were in Chicago!
