With the election over, does America lance the boil of hyper-partisanship or let it callus over into a civic abscess lodged in the national soul? (2:06)

>> Stephen: WELL, FOLKS, THAT'S IT FOR TONIGHT'S LIVE REPORT.

I JUST WANT TO SAY BEFORE WE GO, WHETHER YOU VIDEOED FOR BARACK OBAMA OR -- VOTED FOR BARACK

OBAMA OR MITT ROMNEY TOMORROW SOME OF YOU WILL BE ELATED AND SOME OF YOU WILL BE CRUSHED.

FOR SOME IT WILL BE LIKE CHRISTMAS MORNING, FOR OTHERS THE FIFTH NIGHT OF HANUKKAH.

[LAUGHTER]

OR SO MY WRITERS TELL ME.

SO WHAT NOW?

[LAUGHTER]

WHERE FROM HERE?

THE GAME IS OVER AND THE WHISTLE'S BLOWN.

BUT WE ALL LINE UP AND SHAKE HANDS AND IF SO DID DEBRA'S MOM REMEMBER THE ORANGE SLICES.

WITH THE ELECTION OVER, DO WE LANCE THE BOIL OF HYPER PARTISANSHIP ONCE AND FOR ALL

AND BEGIN TO HEAL OR DO WE LET IT CALLOUS OVER INTO AN ABSCESS, SAVED BY THE PUSS OF THE MEDIA

WHO THRIVE ON AN ATMOSPHERE OF PETTY SQUABBLING AND PERSONAL VISIT RECALL.

THAT'S A HIGH PRICE TO PAY FOR MOMENTARY POLITICAL GAMES.

I FOR ONE AM MORE THAN WILLING TO HAVE YOU PAY IT.

[LAUGHTER]

SO IF YOUR GUY WON, WHEN YOU PULL INTO WORK TOMORROW, JUST TAKE A MOMENT AND HAVE A FEW

DOUGHNUTS IN THE PARKING LOT.

THEN IF YOU'RE LIKE ME, STRIDE INTO WORK, SPORT YOUR THROBBING VICTORY WOOD.

DON'T WAVE IT IN EVERYBODY'S FACE.

OR IF YOU DO WAVE IT, BE CONSIDERATE AND HANG AN AIR RESHENER ON IT.F MEANWHILE IF YOUR GUY LOST, BITE

YOUR TONGUE, FOCUS ON YOUR WORK AND THE FIRST CHANCE YOU GET, YOU PUNCH THAT A-HOLE RIGHT IN

THE AIR FRESHENER AND YOU SAY SEE YOU IN 2016.

GOOD NIGHT AMERICA.

[CROWD CHEERING]

GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
