President Obama Wins Re-election, Promises ‘Best Is Yet to Come’

President Obama won a second term last night and promised his thrilled supporters “that for the United States of America the best is yet to come.”

Obama appeared before thousands of cheering Democrats to the beat of Stevie Wonder’s “Signed, Sealed and Delivered” after securing a strong electoral lead, although he just eked out victories in key states.

He congratulated his opponent Mitt Romney and said, “In the weeks ahead I am looking forward to sitting down with Gov. Romney to discuss how we can move this country forward.”

In a victory speech studded with the soaring rhetoric that first drew voters to him in 2008, Obama reminded the electorate what was still on his agenda — immigration reform, climate change and job creation.
