I'm just saying

From Nate Silver at

What I actually found upon leaving the studio, however, was a spontaneous display of joy in the Nation's Capital. Mere blocks from the White House on Pennsylvania Avenue, in a buttoned-down section of America's only remaining buttoned-downed town, horns were honking in a ticker-tape stream until three in the morning, and strangers black, white and otherwise were hooting and hollering and giving one another thumbs-ups and high-fives as they passed each other on the street.
Can you imagine any other candidate, however worthy, whose victory would have occasioned spontaneous street celebrations, not only within the US but all around the world?
