Barack Obama: “There are times when we are lying in bed and I look over and sort of have a start. Because I realize here is this other person who is separate and different and has different memories and backgrounds and thoughts and feelings. It’s that tension between familiarity and mystery that makes for something strong, because, even as you build a life of trust and comfort and mutual support, you retain some sense of surprise or wonder about the other person.”
 - A Couple in Chicago by Mariana Cook | The New Yorker

That quote is everything.

If by “gifts” you mean “policies that are in the best interest of the overwhelming majority of the American people”

then yes, Obama won by “offering gifts to minorities and young voters”… and also everyone else.

This is getting embarrassing for you, Mitt.

Popular Vote

After CNN’s Virginia call.

50,252,233 Obama

50,128,312 Romney

Edit: Obama lead climbing quickly and not looking back.

Romney campaign is not conceding Ohio.

By the time Florida, Virginia, Colorado, and Nevada get done bar-hopping and roll in here, we might not need it.

I’m hoping the stragglers clean up that popular vote too, just so they don’t have anything else to stand on.

When I was in Chicago, I would root for [the University of] Illinois, but since I’ve been in Washington… well, I work most Saturdays.

“I don’t think it requires us to go negative in the sense of us running a bunch of ads that are false, or character assassinations,” Obama said, as reported by Univision.”It will be based on facts.”
“We may just run clips of the Republican debates verbatim,” he added.
