An episode or two of The West Wing for old timeís sake was the plan for tonight. Then staying up with housemates Ďtil the early hours watching the results streaming in. Everything crossed for the Obama victory Ė surely! I remember four years ago, watching the monitors in Bar One flashing up blue and red states. The picture slowly unfolding before us; more beers to quell the disappointment. Itís different this time: ever since his victory in Iowa back in January Iíve followed every thread of news, every video. Now weíre at the end and I canít keep my eyes open.
