it's a new day.

As with election night itself, yesterday was an emotional, historic occasion. I sat glued to television and monitor from early in the morning until some time close to midnight, watching what looked like the world tilting ever so slightly on its axis. Barack might have stumbled over his words when he took the oath, but during the speech he couldn't have been clearer, it's a new day. As Harry Rosenfeld said to Woodward and Bernstein in All The President's Men, "You're on the story. Now don't fuck it up."
