How it feels to win.

Check out this blog to view a collection of video clips from around the world, recorded at the exact moment that CNN announced that Barack Obama had won the election. You can hear the crowds cheering and counting down, as they had for the other poll-closing announcements…and then a big increase in volume as the “CNN Breaking News” graphic comes up…but then people completely lose their shit as the screen displays “Barack Obama Elected President”.

This will replace 9/11 as our generation’s Where Were You When moment. It’s amazing that even watching it now, after seeing it so many times in the last week or so, I still well up over it.

    Gotta love those poor little cell phone mics getting completely fuzzed out.
