Yes, Barack Obama’s victory was a historic one, and a nail-biting finale to one of the longest and most intense campaigns in election history — but can there be any doubt that last night’s unquestionable highlight was Will.I.Am’s momentous appearance in CNN’s Election Center IN HOLOGRAM FORM? No. (Gizmodo has an explanation for how this was accomplished, sort of.) If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where all things are possible, who still wonders if the dream of our founders is alive in our time, who still questions the power of our democracy, last night was your answer. CNN, you’ve earned that new puppy.
