Back to work: Victorious Obama returns to White House to revive battered economy after Wall St suffers its worst day of year

By TOBY HARNDEN IN BOSTON, HUGO GYE, LYDIA WARREN and THOMAS DURANTE
President Barack Obama wasted little time today as he headed back to Washington hours after celebrating his election victory in Chicago and securing a second term in the White House. Fresh challenges lie ahead for the president as the stock market tumbled in response to his triumph at the polls over Mitt Romney and sabre-rattling from Republicans who demanded that the president make good on his promise to work with both sides of the political aisle in the next four years.
I'm back: Barack Obama as he is driven in to the White House on Wednesday, after being re-elected for another four years as President Obama was joined by First Lady Michelle Obama and their children Malia and Sasha as they departed the Windy City on Air Force One. They arrived in Washington at about 6.30pm and returned to the iconic building which has been their home for the last four years - and where they will remain for the next four. Last night, he called for unity and set out an optimistic vision of America's future this morning in a rousing acceptance speech.
Not getting evicted: The First Family re-entered the house via a specially constructed walkway He promised 'the best is yet to come' and said the fierce battle with Romney had made him a better president, vowing: 'I will return to the White House more determined and inspired than ever.' In a speech that saw a return to the soaring rhetoric he has become known for since his election in 2008, Obama said he had ‘listened and learned’ from the American people during his campaign. With his voice going hoarse at times, he said: 'Progress comes in fits and starts' and the road is littered with ‘difficult compromises.' But he said he enters the next four years with an 'economy recovering, a decade of war ending and a long campaign is over.'
Homecoming: The family has spent four years living in the most famous home in the U.S. He paid tribute to his opponent and hopes they can 'work together in the coming weeks.' The GOP has indicated that they will hold him to it. Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell was frosty in his post-election remarks. 'The voters have not endorsed the failures or excesses of the president's first term,' McConnell said.
