Keeping the tone light, she continued proudly: 'History. Twice. I'll show this to my grand kids, along with my vintage console and painful corns.'

Olivia Wilde echoed: 'AMERICA! You have spoken! Women! You have been heard! Young people! You proved them wrong! Tireless Obama volunteers! I THANK YOU!'
