Obama Wins Presidential Election: Yes We Did!!

Obama Wins Presidential Election: Yes We Did!!

At 11:00 p.m. (Eastern Time), NBC News made its official projection that Senator Barack Obama will be the 44th President of the United States of America.  Obama won 338 electoral votes, to McCain’s 156 electoral votes.  In an amazing moment in American history, the ultimate color line has been broken. The last few days have challenged Obama’s sense of calm like never before, his election-day stress amplified by the fatigue of an 18-month campaign and the death of his grandmother just yesterday.

A sense of history stalked Obama everywhere on election day. At this moment, hundreds of thousands of Chicagoans are already celebrating in Chicago’s Grant Park, where the crowd is anticipated to reach 1,000,000 people or more.   President-elect Obama is scheduled to appear to make his victory remarks before the huge crowd in Grant Park at around 11:00 p.m. (Central Time).

We are all so privileged to have witnessed this historic event tonight.

    I’m so proud that people did the right thing and brought aan end to a sorry history for this country. I’ll say up front I’ve been a Republican for forty-one years and was ashamed the last eight.
    I voted Obama and look forward to his years in office. It won’t be an easy task. We’ve got a terrific mess to get out of, but I’m confident the right man will lead the charge.
    He will need all of our help though.

    hi, im a moslem from Indonesia, im very excited for the victory of Barack Obama. Obama had ever lived in Indonesia and i am very proud for because he has history from Indonesia.
    I hope Obama can bring change for America so that he can fix the international relationship among the country from all over the world. Many people in Indonesia hate America and Goerge W. Bush for his policy. Hopefully, Obama’s changing will not make America hated in Indonesia.

    … where the crowd is anticipated to reach 1,000,000 people or more

    That would be about 240,000 or so. A large number, indeed, but not 2 million. Obama is a great candidate for president, but don’t overdramatize things.

  8. Jeremy Styron Says:

    Pardon me, 1 million …
