A great set of pictures taken by David Katz that gives us an inside peek at the anticipation felt by Obama, his staff and his family before the results were announced. During numerous speeches of his campaign, he spoke of hope. In these pictures, you can sense the eager anticipation he must have had but just as we would expect from our president, you also see a calmness and a steadiness that we have all come to admire.
Taken near Grant Park in Chicago, at the Hyatt Regency Hotel presidential suite. You can check out the whole set here
