There is euphoria inside the giant convention hall serving as President Obama's election night HQ.
The crowd is dancing. Supporters are waving flags. The election is over and the President retains the White House fairly easily.
It wasn't pretty. The campaign was negative. But President Obama is fiercely competitive will relish this win almost as much as 2008.
Even amid the celebrations here, there are plenty of wise Americans wondering how a second-term Obama escapes the gridlock and paralysis of Washington.
But don't discuss that with anyone here. At least not right now. They just want to party.
