It is great having someone from your hometown make President. We were on local, National, and International news. We had the opportunity to watch everything on local or national news. It was interesting seeing our local news people with so many newscasters from all over in the background.
We had every local politician interviewed either at Grant Park or on local news. Jesse Jackson Jr. really got chatty, but he's next in line for....well there are so many rumors.
So many are rumored to being going to DC, even State Treasurer Alexi Giannouliasm also rumors he could be running for Governor. As exciting as it is to watch Obama win, we now will have a lot of movement of many politicians because of this.
Not that political news in this city, county and state have ever been boring, but political reporters will have the best job security ever.
