"Because the night belongs to us"
Today. . .this night, does belong to us, as Patty Smith and The Boss wrote decades ago.
After two long years of campaigning, we sit now in the eye of the hurricane, waiting for the next wave of the storm to hit. I've irritated most of my friends over the last couple months, when I wrote saying "be aware of the bear," that we had won nothing yet, that Democrats, had a pathetic record of closing the sale, and this time was no different.
McCain was actually a real threat. The gut-wrenching list of Stevenson, Humphrey, McGovern, Carter, Mondale, Dukakis, Gore, and Kerry give one pause.
But, alas, we've done it.
