Nov. 9 (UPI) -- "I'm really proud of all of you," President Barack Obama said Wednesday night, one day after he claimed a decisive electoral college victory in the presidential election. Speaking to staff and volunteers at his campaign headquarters in Chicago, the president got emotional standing before a team that helped him sweep the nation's battleground states. They deserve the adulation -- even Republican pundits and politicians have conceded that the Obama campaign had put together one of the most impressive on-the-ground organizations ever created for a presidential election.
