And for people who have been hoping that he would become unifying, hoping that he might find some way to become presidential, they should be happy with that moment. For people who have been hoping that maybe he would remain a divisive cartoon, which he often finds a way to do, they should begin to become a little bit worried tonight, because that thing you just saw him do, if he finds a way to do that over and over again, he’s going to be there for eight years. But he did something tonight that you cannot take away from him. Now, there was a lot that he said in that speech that was counter-factual, that was not right, that I oppose and will oppose. He became president of the United States. And he did something extraordinary.
