The Roundup returns!

The "thrill of victory and agony of defeat* as history was made this week" edition of the weekly unpredictable TennViews roundup featuring primary reaction from Tennessee's best bloggers.

10,000 Monkeys and a Camera:: It's done. It's over. It's an historic night.

Cup Of Joe Powell: : Clinging to past prejudices in light of change is a sure sign of extinction.

Don Williams:: It also delivered a message in a bottle to future historians. In a speech she surely knew would be history-making, no matter what she said or how she said it, she said and did all the right things.

TNDP: Last night the votes were counted. All across the country, from Maine to Montana, two superior candidates drew voters into the Democratic fold in record numbers. As a Democratic Party, we are ready to unite. We are ready to work. We are ready to win.

KnoxViews: These are some kick-ass numbers across the board for Democrats.

Lean Left: It is truly a remarkable achievement and an unalloyed good. There is a lot more work to be done, that is true, but we should take a moment to stop and appreciate what has been achieved.

Left of the Dial: 2008 wasn’t supposed to be this difficult. This primary season has made the hanging chads and Supreme Court decision of 2000 and Swift Boat ads of 2004 seem like pleasant memories.

LeftWingCracker:: Joy, sadness, apprehension.

Sean Braisted: Its been a long time coming, and we are glad to have been a part of this historic victory.

Sharon Cobb:: Tears are just streaming down my face. This is one of the most extraordinary moments in my life, and in the lives of millions of Americans.

Silence Isn't Golden:: There will be talk in the coming days about how to best unify the party. But in the meantime, it's time to celebrate!

Tennessee Guerilla Women:: It's been a very rough week for Hillary supporters. I know many of you are grieving, as I am.

Vibinc:: I know I've been hard on you. I know I said some things that, perhaps cross the margins of polite discussion. Still, despite it all, we are Democrats, and I thank you for your unequivocal support for the Democratic nominee.

WhitesCreek Journal:: It's now time to turn away from the divisiveness of this Primary contest. Sexism did not cause Hillary to lose... And, Racism did not and will not keep Obama from winning
