    better than the other.  Kind of like having two kids.  You can love them both equally but differently.

    The elation of the 2008 election and the tears of joy were super special and something the country won't experience again.  I wouldn't give up that feeling for anything.

    This one is a little more mature and level headed and super satisfying in a different way.  The results in the senate with so many really quality new senators is very gratifying too and add to the pleasure of President Obama's reelection.

    •  I was comparing this one with 2010 (0+ / 0-)

      the last mid-terms, not Obama's election 2008.

      Big difference.
