"From George to Lenore to their son Mitt, the Romney family has chosen to give back to their country though public service," President Obama said in his Chicago victory speech.

He also waxed poetic about his own family, telling his wife Michelle that "I've never loved you more," and his daughters Sasha and Malia that they were "growing up to become two strong smart beautiful women." 

He went on to thank his campaign team and his volunteers, "the best ever." Whatever they do next, he said, "you will have the lifelong appreciation of a president."
