President Barack Obama gets another four years to add to his already storied legacy.

After a hard-fought, oft-nasty battle against Republican challenger Mitt Romney, NBC News called the 2012 presidential election in the Democratic incumbent's favor at approximately 8:13 p.m. tonight, with CBS News and CNN following suit moments later.

"Four more years," Obama tweeted just moments ago, along with a photo of him locked in a tender embrace with first lady Michelle Obama.

"This happened because of you. Thank you," Obama added. "We're all in this together. That's how we campaigned, and that's who we are. Thank you. -bo"

Seemingly not a minute leading up to this moment has been easy for Obama since his historic victory in 2008—but he came, he governed, he campaigned for reelection and, ultimately, he conquered.
