Barack Obama Elected President

Democrat Barack Obama was elected as the first black president of the United States of America on Tuesday night.

The 47-year-old senator from Illinois defeated Republican Sen. John McCain. Officials said voters came out in record numbers on Election Day — 130 to 140 million people.

The crowd is going wild in Grant Park in Chicago, where Obama will give his first public speech as president-elect.

Obama will be sworn in as the 44th President on January 20, 2009.

Congratulations America.

This is really something that America should be very very proud of.

I cannot off hand, think of a single country in the world where a person from a minority group, let alone, a group which had up until the 1970s, been discriminated against under the LAW, can rise up to be the democratically elected president of that country. Not France, or the UK or Germany or any place in Europe or Asia.
