And history is made.

It's 5:25am here in England. I haven't been to bed. I'm so thankful for streaming online video that lets me watch CNN and MSNBC live on my laptop (there's no TV in my conference room).

Everybody here at the conference has been asking what I thought would happen with the election. I told them I believed it would be a real blow-out for Obama, and I'm glad I was right. Can't wait to walk into breakfast triumphant in a couple of hours! Everyone here was really pulling for Obama but truly believed that somehow he'd be cheated out of the win. I'm glad there is no question this time, and we've proven we can do things so very right.

I love watching the faces in the crowd and on stage at Grant Park in Chicago. This is who we are - all ages, colors, socio-economic groups - waving our flags and being proud of what we've accomplished. Good for us. Good for U.S.

Enjoy your time in jolly old England while the world dances with us!

Congratulations to President-Elect Obama.

And what an honor it is to be a part of this amazing piece of history. I think we have just begun to see how special Barack Obama is...
