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.
