Roy Cooper is a winner

One of the highlights of hanging out at the Dem’s party on election night was Roy Cooper. He gave a great speech after winning another term as attorney general and gave up the stage for the other candidates.

Thirty minutes later the crowd has thinned. I turned around and there’s Roy Cooper right behind me, with no entourage or anything, warmly shaking hands with folks in the crowd. I was impressed that the state’s top cop would take time to personally thank his supporters on election night. He was the only candidate I saw who made the effort to cross the rope line.

How cool is it that the one politician who got more North Carolina votes Tuesday than any other candidate (including McCain and Obama) is down to earth?
