"Elated!"

From The Editors Blog

As a quick follow-up to my earlier post about Obama's voting trip, apparently none other than my geography professor was waiting in line, when the senator showed up and, presumably, cut everyone. The professor, originally from England, started class gushing about watching the motorcade come down the street, where (he claims) he could see Obama's profile through the tinted glass. His post-voting reaction, at the beginning of class, was pure, God-Bless-America goodness: "I've been up standing in the streets for two and a half hours, I haven't eaten breakfast, but I'm elated!"
