Election Night 2012: Scenes from Obama’s Victory Party

This year’s victory rally was by invitation only, open mostly to campaign staffers and volunteers. Here’s your behind-the-scenes look, including Rahm, Will.i.am, the First Family, and more.

If you weren’t one of the few thousands chosen to attend, here’s a behind-the-scenes look at the biggest party in Chicago on Tuesday night—including Rahm, Will.i.am, and the newly re-elected president himself.
