CHICAGO -- An ecstatic sea of Barack Obama supporters danced, cried and stared with awe at television screens, awaiting their president elect.
VIP supporters virtually skipped into holding pens around the podium. Oprah, Howard Dean, Bill Daley, Jesse Jackson, Will. I. Am. and assorted politicians and donors snapped photos and cheered ecstatically as the Obama family headed over to Grant Park by motorcade from a nearby hotel, where they had watched the returns.
