And last but certainly not least, Obama's victory elicited the first Facebook status update from a 71-year-old Bob Dylan:

"Here's pretty close to what I said last night in Madison. I said from the stage that we had to play better than good tonight, that the president was here today and he’s a hard act to follow. Also, that we’re not fooled by the media and we think it’s going to be a landslide. That’s pretty much all of it."
