Words cannot express what I feel right now.

This is one of the greatest nights of my life. Watching that acceptance speech was amazing. See Jesse Jackson crying in the crowd was incredibly powerful.

And I can't express enough how amazing it is that we just elected an African-American president. In this nation. As a historian who knows way too much about the depths of American racism, I am absolutely amazed that we have reached this point. I'll have more on this tomorrow, but I can't even comprehend this fact. I never thought we would see this in my lifetime, or if we did, it would have to be a Republican.

President Obama. That has one hell of an amazing ring to it.
