Some Israelis stayed up to see US elections results (and Times of Israel live-Tweeted all night), but most folks like me figured we would go to sleep and see the results first thing in the morning.
Obama was re-elected president and I went to find the celebration party.
Ben Yehudah Street was quiet.
I found Jerusalem cats, but no Democrats.
Lots of sufganiot are on display, but at English Cake, “NO PHOTOS!”
Then, on King George Street, I saw the first signs of Obama in Jerusalem, Israel and they were coming from The American Center.
Where else would the American Center be located if not near
Lincoln Street, though as many ToI readers are aware, it is pronounced Link-O-Lynn here.
Romney was on the big screen in the American Center library
and so was Obama, but the live broadcast party was clearly over.
Even in Jerusalem, Obama was getting all the love and Romney was standing like a cardboard cut out.
And there in the corner, watching over the whole scene was President Lincoln. I wonder if he was as happy as most of us are that the endless US election season is finally over?
Oh well, time now to start talking about 2016.
