Well, it's all over. Barack Obama has been re-elected President of the United States, after securing 18 electoral votes from the state of Ohio to put him over the magic 270 on Tuesday night.

Hanging with Hov and The Boss is cool and all, but following the win, the POTUS made sure to promptly give his millions of followers a proper shout-out.
