Tom Joyner: I’m doing good.  How you doing?

THE PRESIDENT:  Well, I am blessed.  Are we already on the air, Tom?

Tom Joyner: Yes.  I’m rolling.

THE PRESIDENT:  Well, listen, the reason I’m calling is just to say thank you.  I’m saying thank you to you and the team, but most importantly to say thank you to the listeners because when I saw what was going on on Election Day, and just seeing everybody so determined and waiting in line and just not putting up with anything to make sure that we were able to keep moving forward on our agenda, I couldn’t have been prouder or more humbled.  And I know that it was because of the efforts of folks all across the country volunteering, writing $5 checks, $10 checks.  It just meant a lot.  And I know I couldn’t have done it without you guys, so I wanted to let you know we appreciate you.
