Barack Obama's victory speech in Chicago tonight was moving and powerful. The crowd -- an incredibly massive one -- was treated not just to an amazing piece of history, but a great orator at his peak.

I'm not sure what more to say tonight. I'm speechless.

Oh, and it's looking like the final Electoral College count will be:

Obama: 364

McCain: 173
