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.

    As my wise grandma said Time’s and people have changed.
    It really shows. Look at trashy Hollywood now and with Paul Newman gone the glory days are gone.

    Same with America. I just pray for my country now and await the real rejoicing in heaven.

  • wake up

    The economy will always break down and sorry America and the democratic world terrorism will never end. As we preserve freedom the terrorists breeds their newborn trained to kill us too.

    Only God is the real change. Not Obama.

  • csxyz

    Amazing. President Obama. :))

  • blah

    Ace tomato, I totally agree with you on the black thing. I hope this finally convinces the black/minority population of America that the majority of people are not looking down at them because of the color of their skin. It truly does not matter in this day and age!

    On the other hand, I hope we don’t go crazy with the whole “ra ra America” thing. Yes we made history by voting in a black president but really, we only made history within ourselves. Pakistan has had a female prime minister for gods sakes and we’ve only finally elected someone who wasn’t a white male. It’s 2008! It’s not really something to be overly proud of I don’t think.

    very true #164

    same in the Phillipines we had the Marcos Imelda crisis then the Phillippines elected their historic female President to bring CHANGE in the nation. It was not CHANGE. The media and Catholic church brainwashed the people. Phillipines got worst and its corrupt than ever. So much starvation and communism and terrorism is growing.

    America: Abusayeff from Mindanao the tribes of Ben Ladin train hard everyday to kill the Phil.military and still aim to kill Americans.

  • Ace tomato

    Thanks, Blah. Say, how ’bout that Bobby Jindal 2012? heh

    Obama supporters – please do not forget – the Republicans had a female Vice President candidate on this race. Whether you love her or loathe her – that, too, is history in the making.

    I actually feel sorry for Hillary Clinton tonight. This must be hard.
