I'm not camped out in front of the Federal Reserve Bank, nor am I marching across downtown Chicago with my fellow compatriots, even though I am more than 99 percent sure I should be.

I write this just after returning from McCormick Place where I listened to President Barack Obama deliver one of the best speeches of his political career. My back, legs and feet ache from standing on the unforgiving concrete for six-and-a-half hours while we waited for the news of Obama's re-election, for Mitt Romney to write his concession speech, and for Obama to deliver his.
