Democrats Abroad celebrate Obama victory in Toronto

While there was some serious nail-biting over the course of the evening, the Democrats Abroad US Election party in Toronto ended with a room full of jubilant faces as most major networks declared President Obama winner of a second term at around 11:30 p.m. It would be a long wait until the victory speech was delivered, but it hardly mattered for the group gathered at the Sheraton Centre's Dominion Ballroom, who erupted when the big announcement was made. The mood, I'm told, was decidedly less upbeat at the Harbour Sports Grille, where Republicans Abroad gathered for an election party not meant to end until Romney was declared winner. Ouch.
