It finally happened. At 10:00 pm CST, as soon as the polls closed in the west coast states, Barack Obama was declared the winner of the 2008 Presidential elections. Yes, Senator Obama will become the 44th President of the United States of America!
This is a historic day, not only for African Americans, but for the entire United States. The concept of America as the land of opportunity was never truer than today. Anybody can do anything in the United States. President-elect Obama embodies the American Dream in its purest form.
And I commend John McCain for his wonderful concession speech. You can't help but admire this side of John McCain.
Congratulations President-elect Obama!
