Video of the Day: Romney Revelers Mess with Fox News' Carl Cameron

With the political press already shifting its sights to New Hampshire, it's worth taking a moment to appreciate the joy of victory.

It may have been a nail-biter decided by only eight votes, but there was nothing that could contain the jubilation of some Romney staffers Wednesday morning at the Hotel Fort Des Moines. During an impromptu early-morning rally, aides danced in circles, shouted "woo!" incessantly, and chanted the names of two staffers.

The best moment comes as Fox News' Carl Cameron looks perplexedly at the circus behind him as he tries to complete a standup -- on the air, it was speculated that the revelers might be Occupiers, and indeed, the raucous reaction would have been out of character for their staid boss.
