Good night, now

by Lorenzo Piccoli

At the end, the margin is bigger than expected and there are reasons to celebrate. President Obama delivered one of his best speeches, that brought many people back in the victorious electoral night of 2008. Mitt Romney delivered a very high profile speech too. Now, again, there are reasons to be worried: just to mention a couple, the victory is far narrower than the historic election of four years ago and the Democrats are not in control of the Congress. But, yeah, after all getting four more years is already an accomplishment in itself. I guess for the moment we can celebrate and go to sleep, at least four more hours.
