Barack Obama Elected President!

Barack Obama took the presidency tonight after breakthrough wins in Ohio and Virginia. At 8 p.m. PST, as soon as the polls closed in California, Oregon and Washington, the networks called the election of President Barack Obama. Republican candidate John McCain suffered losses in Ohio, the state that narrowly gave President George W. Bush victory in 2004, but also in key states like Pennsylvania, Iowa and New Mexico.

There are a number of Senate seats that have not yet been decided, and we will keep on top of that, but for now congratulations to the Democrats and Barack Obama, the 44th President of the United States.

Hotpink90210, bigots like you had their time and now it's about over. Racists and extremists like you who have such loud brash voices in today's society are on your way down. You may not disappear in my day or my children's but be assured you will. You are out of touch with America and the rest of the world and you are on your way out. So yell, scream, make a fuss... This day, this man has proven your growing ineffectuality.

Last night was rough, but it was a good rough, its amazing to be an american and to be able to log on to my computer and share all the ups and downs with fellow conservatives and a few liberals! I have always been proud to live in this country and who can deny the passion we all have for it? Not after this presidential race thats for sure!

People booed for McCain in Grant Park and people booed for Obama in Phoenix, get over it... it happens. Unfortunately, not everyone is respectful. McCain's speech was great -- very heartfelt and real. Obama's speech was monumental and inspiring -- so many people were in tears! Now let's move on and focus on the next 4 years and making our country better, instead of pointing fingers!

YES WE CAN! I'm Spanish and I was really happy he won. I hope he can fix America (and the world) and give us energy to go on. Go, Obama! And great speech, McCain. That was classy.

"Okay I'm going to say it again and I'm going to keep saying it until you guys get it. I was at Grant Park in Chicago tonight. There was plenty of booing for McCain and Palin. This is not the time to vilify Republicans. This is the time to extend an olive branch and to try to work together to fix our country. Gloating is not necessary." Thank you Harm! :notworthy:

Congrats to President-elect Obama. Last night's events are a testament to the American dream and the fact that in this great nation, anything is possible. I am proud to be an American citizen during these important, historic times. That being said, it's back to the conservative grindstone... :wave:

Obama isn't some messiah come to save the US. He's said as much himself... I know many of you are still on a high but don't expect miracles. I agree that he's going to be a great leader, but don't turn him into a god... His ability lies in unifying America. Let's stand behind and HELP him in that!
