I just awoke to hear the good news. A victory for the poor, the dispossessed, women, gays (same-sex marriage now legal in Maine and Maryland), and anybody who cares about stuff beyond their bank account.
Oh, and Nate Silver, the NY TImes‘s pundit, has been vindicated, as noted by xkcd:
Electoral College vote:
Silver’s prediction: 313 Obama, 225 Mittens
Actual: 303 Obama, 206 Mittens, with some results not in
Silver’s prediction: Obama 50.8%, Mittens 48.3%
Actual: Obama 50%, Mittens 48%, some results not in.
We can haz four more years!
