An NC Progressive, out of country after election day

Interesting to be on the road the day after the election. Vignettes:

1. O'Hare airport the morning after the Grant Park address - a lot of bleary-eyed, happy people; some wore Obama teeshirts, some didn't have to. There were a few perceptible scowls on the faces of some well-dressed road warriors in the First Class line. May or may not have had anything to do with the election.

2. On the flight to Vancouver, sitting next to a man who'd been at Grant Park. He was filled with emotion about it - and he a "well-dressed road warrior" CEO of his own company. He'd walked behind MLK's family at the funeral procession in Georgia and equated being at Grant Park with it as the two most memorable days in his life.
