THIS IS A RUSH TRANSCRIPT. THIS COPY MAY NOT BE IN ITS FINAL FORM AND MAY BE UPDATED.
CHARLES BIERBAUER, CNN CORRESPONDENT (voice-over): The president has won reelection and is about to address his followers, his fans, his supporters here in Los Angeles.
AUDIENCE: Four more years! Four more years.
RONALD REAGAN, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: Thank you. I think that's just been arranged.
BIERBAUER (on camera): Well, the Reagan reelection was no particular surprise by the time that we got to November of 1984. It was clear it was no contest. What struck me that was everyone was very much of the mind that this was going to happen. No one was particularly surprised. The celebration in Los Angeles was very much what you might except. It was, once again, Ronald Reagan's shining city on a hill full of glitter and tinsel and sparklers and balloons and confetti.
REAGAN: To each one of you, I say: Tonight is the end of nothing. It's the beginning of everything.
BIERBAUER: This was a confirmation that the country was very happy with what it had done four years earlier, and was happy to have, as we heard so many times on the campaign trail: four more years.
That's been the theme song of Ronald Reagan's reelection campaign, heard one more time here. Going forward, the president talked about things he hoped to do in that second term. We have heard a lot of talk about a mandate for the president in this landslide reelection.
