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.

The people have spoken. Now, lets bring this country back together and work toward a fantastic future!!!

THIS IS HISTORY!!!! YEAH!!!!!!!!!!

Such a shame some of you cannot be as gracious and supportive as McCain was. This is still your country and is still our country and everyone should be working together to make it better, not throwing around slurs.

Yes. McCains concession speak was very eloquently and well spoken. Many blessings and luck to him and his family…

This is truly an awesome moment in American history. While I may not agree with him, I’m glad John McCain acknowledges the importance of the next 4 years and his willingness to be involved. Congratulations President Elect Barack Obama! Go America!

mccain electors stop being so rude, its mean. yay obamaa =] your gonna make a GREAT president

I am so happy for Brack Obama.

Great day to be American!

McCain speech was actually one of the best speeches I have ever heard, he should have spoken like that a little more through the election.

I HOPE TODAY IS THE LAST DAY IN AMERICA THAT WE HEAR BLACK PEOPLE USE RACE AS AN EXCUSE

Congrats Mr Barrack Obama !

Now….we can all move forward away from the previous 8 years of bad leadership .

GOD BLESS AMERICA, GOD BLESS OBAMA!

America you have made the world so proud, let the work begin but until JAN 20 2009…LET’S CELEBRATE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Alright fellow Conservatives – time for us to accept defeat of our candidate gracefully and support our New President Obama. No matter how we may disagree with his policies and ideology, we owe it to ourselves and to our country to express our opinions with respect, tact and a genuine goal of looking for solutions to problems, not hammering wedges between us.

I have genuine, rather grave concerns about Obama, but I do think it is wonderful we have a black President. Hopefully, that will shut down that inner voice that burns like a paper cut on the souls and self esteem of a lot of black people in this country, telling them that no matter how far they have come, they will never reach some pinnacles. The race card needs to be retired. We can fight like cats & dogs over what we think this country needs, but what it doesn’t need is for anyone to believe that someone cannot achieve something because they are black.

Thank you, President Obama, for making that a reality.

Congrats to all you Obama supporters – while I am not an Obama supporter – I bet it feels really, genuinely great to see him win. Enjoy =)
