In a historic victory, Barack Obama has become the 44th president of the United States of America. Most significantly, this charismatic Illinois senator has become America’s first African-American president.
Here Barack Obama addresses an enthusiastic crowd in Chicago with a speech that is sure to be quoted for decades to come.
Barack Obama’s appeal goes so much deeper than the color of his skin. He has inspired so many people to get out and vote: fellow African Americans, youth, and folks who were simply fed up of either years of a Bush government.
He promises to be a charismatic, intelligent, and warm leader, truly in touch with the common man and what they need. His challenges are great, in a world devastated by economic turmoil and global warming. But I feel confident Obama is up to the task.
Congratulations America. You got it right this time.
