At the Obama Victory Party, Moving Forward (to the Oldies)

The newly re-elected President Obama took the stage shortly after midnight, but music and dancing began long before that. Here’s a playlist of songs we heard at the Obama victory rally.

We don’t know what music Team Romney was playing in Boston last night, but we’re pretty sure that the Dems could claim victory on the tunage front, too. Below, listen to the playlist of some songs we heard at President Obama’s victory party, and channel election night at McCormick Place again and again.
