Congrats to President-Elect Barack Obama for his big victory last week! Obama has made history, by becoming the first African American U.S. President, and also because turned nine states that President Bush won in 2004 to Democratic blue. Senator Obama represents change, progress, and hope, three things this country is in dire need of after 8 years of torture. After a long night on November 4th, 2008, America was finally able to breathe a little easier. For those of you who didn't catch his acceptance speech, let the eloquent speaking of our new President fill you with hope that we will overcome this terrible state we are in today.
"To those who would tear this world down, we will defeat you. To those who seek peace and security, we support you. And to all those who have wondered if America’s beacon still burns as bright, tonight we proved once more that the true strength of our nation comes not from our the might of our arms or the scale of our wealth, but from the enduring power of our ideals: democracy, liberty, opportunity and unyielding hope."- President-Elect Barack Obama
