YES WE DID - we certainly DID!

YES!   WE!    DID!

This is a few seconds after 8PM PST when we at the Oregon Convention Center knew that the closing of our polls out just put Obama over the 270 electoral votes!

It was a madhouse - but such a joyous joyful mad house.

Got Obama's message this morning:
I'm about to head to Grant Park to talk to everyone gathered there, but I wanted to write to you first.
We just made history.

And I don't want you to forget how we did it.

You made history every single day during this campaign -- every day you knocked on doors, made a donation, or talked to your family, friends, and neighbors about why you believe it's time for change.

I want to thank all of you who gave your time, talent, and passion to this campaign.

We have a lot of work to do to get our country back on track, and I'll be in touch soon about what comes next.

But I want to be very clear about one thing...

All of this happened because of you.

Thank you,

My Chicago family was at Grant Park for this historic moment in history!

[and I still get weepy about the enormity of what we just accomplished]
