When Barack Obama was a student at Harvard Law School, he lived at 365 Broadway Avenue in Somerville, Massachusetts. For a year during that time, I lived a block away. I never met him, and have no recollection of even seeing him. However, it's really, really nice to think we may have passed in the street or stood in the same line at the local supermarket.
Congratulations, Mr. President. I am relieved, delighted, and very, very proud today.
