Two days after the election, how Obama won the presidency is still the talk of the town—as are the raucous celebrations on election night. Don't forget to send us your stories of what you did on election night, whether it was walking to the White House, as in the photo above, or contemplating the events at home.

The other big political news is that Obama appears close to naming Rahm Emanuel as his Chief of Staff. Back in May, we profiled Rahm and his family—read that article here, and see how his brothers and background have influenced him.  

Forget the fact that an historic election took place and we have a president-elect who will face some of the toughest challenges in memory—the real question seems to be, did you, like, totally love, or totally hate the dress Michelle Obama wore on election night? (Frankly, it wasn't our favorite. But she still looked pretty good.)

A true sign of the difficult economic times—Colonial Williamsburg is cutting jobs.
