He was one of the light operators on Tuesday night – seated behind the stage, far above the delegates at the DNC in Philly.
And he looked how many people feel right now – done with the whole shebang. KUOW reporter David Hyde was there on a break, eating a Chick-fil-A sandwich, when he captured this brief moment during the roll call for Hillary Clinton's nomination.
It's a 21-second video, and you should watch to the end.

The operator is bald with a goatee. He crosses his left leg over his right knee. He wears headphones, presumably to drown out some of the noise.
We don't know what he's reading.
When the crowd roars during roll call, he glances over. Barely perceptibly, he shakes his head and sighs a little.
Then he keeps reading.
