Slate: How Obama Won

On Monday, President Barack Obama makes a call to thank a volunteer as he visits a call center in a campaign office in the German Village section of Columbus, Ohio. In the end, Obama won re-election exactly the way his campaign had predicted: running up big margins with women and minorities, mobilizing a sophisticated registration and get-out-the-vote operation and focusing narrowly on the battleground states that would determine the election. It wasn't always exciting, and it was hardly transformational. But it worked. Slate magazine weighs in on how Obama won re-election here. (AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster)

Question: Are you ready for 4 more years of the Obama administration?
