I don’t know about other cities, but the day after the election I got this feeling of a glow over the city. Sure on the subway people had their usual street faces, but looking at them I felt like underneath they’re much happier or at least more optimistic. I’d say it’s pretty safe to say considering over 60% of New York voted for Obama.

I’m sure at some point the glow will wear off and we’ll be back to being irritated at each other for small things, but for now it’s a good feeling. Though maybe the inauguration will give the glow a boost again. I know for now just thinking about it instantly puts a smile on my face.
