Republicans are now saying "But this is nowhere near the enthusiasm and support that Obama got in 2008." But I believe it is much more significant that he has won now. People are no longer starry eyed. They no longer believe in miracles. They know times are hard, the country has many challenges, issues are complex and difficult, there is no one shining path.
NEVERTHELESS they supported the man who has slogged through the trenches, who has tried his very best, who is a man of compassion and character. I truly think this vote reflects great courage and resolve on the part of the American people.
