Matt and I decided to go downtown to check out the festivities and were following a stream of people over a bridge into Grant Park around 10:30 when suddenly the crowd started sprinting to the left where a jumbotron was.
We ran after them through the trees to stop in the crowd and watch McCain concede. We then headed to more screens closer to the lake to watch Obama give his acceptance speech. Being there and screaming “yes we did” with the crowd made me feel legitimately patriotic for the first time in my adult life.
And then I went home to stay up and watch Prop 8 pass and Franken lose to Coleman. Most likely.
Yes we did. Now to finish the job.
