I feel like I had 18 opening nights last night. My adreneline is spent. How elections are run is forever changed. New England is now 100% blue. Staten Island is too.

And Mr. Obama is President. The first job will be cleaning up the racist spewing from the losers of last night's contests.

We will hear about problems at booths, etc for some time to come. Tim Robbins' name wasn't listed where he voted for the last 12 years. Spike Lee's machine at PS 46 in Fort Greene was broken. Al Franken's race in Minnesota is still too close to call.

Then there is the work that will have to continue. Not just in fixing what is broken about the country but also in keeping someone like Palin out of office. That choice was so irresponsible and dangerous at this fragile time.
