President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama - Grant Park - Chicago - 2008


I live in Chicago and I was in Grant Park the night Barack Obama won the election. It was an electrifying evening on so many fronts and one I will always remember. I love the intimacy of this moment, when the Obamas came to the stage after it was announced that he had won.



Michelle Obama's speech last night was wonderful; I think she could run for any office and win. She touched all the right notes. I love this one:

"Well, today, after so many struggles and triumphs and moments that have tested my husband in ways I never could have imagined, I have seen firsthand that being president doesn't change who you are. No, it reveals who you are."
