You may have heard a little something about this, but we here in the US elected a new President on Tuesday. Barack Obama? Remember him? We're still pinching ourselves, so it's understandable, but yeah: this really happened. It's pretty great.
Our man Faraone was in Chicago for Barack Obama celebration, and here's his video report (Music: Young Jeezy featuring Nas, "My President is Black" and The National, "Mr. November").
The Phoenix's Chris Faraone is in Grant Park, Twittering like a fool. Here's the full Obama victory speech, followed by Faraone's updates live from the ground.
12:30 pm: Hurry up Chicago. Get to Grant Park now and you can be the first in line for the non ticketed area.
1:20 pm: About 200 people in line at Grant Park so far.
