Barack Obama Wins: The Insanity is Over!

Posted by Martin Poulter on 6 November 2008

The world celebrates as an academic defeats the forces of anti-intellectualism and wins more votes than any US president in history. Tuesday was emotional- I was close to tears several times, and have to pay tribute to the crowd at the Cube Cinema for partying in the early hours. The drama is recorded for posterity – from first results to the morning after – in this long MetaFilter thread.

FiveThirtyEight.com‘s election predictions were surprisingly accurate – chalk one up to the appliance of science. I want to especially congratulate the DailyKos online community for their amazing stories of dedication to the cause, day by day for years. If only British politics were half this interesting!
