With less than a week to go before Election Day, Colorado 4-year-old Abigael Evans, had some serious election fatigue. "I'm tired of Bronco Bama and Mitt Romney," a teary-eyed Abigael told her mother in a video posted to YouTube. Abigael spoke for so many Americans who had had enough -- even President Barack Obama himself had joked at the Al Smith dinner in October that it felt like the race had "gone on forever."
Well, rest assured America, Abigael Evans is happy again. In a new video her mother Elizabeth posted to YouTube, Abigael gets the news she was needing -- that the election is over and a winner was named.
"Guess what? The election is over," Elizabeth says to Abigael.
A much more cheerful Abigael processes the information for a moment and then excitedly asks, "Who is going to be our president?!"
"Bronco," Elizibeth begins, to which Abigael finishes: "Bama!"
Abigael then lets out a heartfelt "Yeah!" lightly pumping her fist in celebration.
Back in October, Elizabeth Evans told 9News that she and her daughter were listening to NPR when Abigael starting tearing up -- so sad was Abigael about "Bronco Bama" and Mitt Romney and whatever she heard about them on NPR with her mother, NPR issued an apology to the young girl, Mark Memmott wrote:
On behalf of NPR and all other news outlets, we apologize to Abigael and all the many others who probably feel like her. We must confess, the campaign's gone on long enough for us, too. Let's just keep telling ourselves: 'Only a few more days, only a few more days, only a few more days.'
Elizabeth wrote on her YouTube page about the huge reaction that Abigael has received, "Thank you all for such wonderful support! Abbie is a most amazing little girl--brilliant, gorgeous and hilarious. I am so proud of her, and cannot believe how privileged I am to have her as my daughter. This has been a fun ride, and we are amazed at all that has happened. I am very pleased knowing that Barack Obama will continue to lead our beautiful country, and look forward to the incredible future ahead of us!"
