    Barack Obama, a 47-year-old first-term senator from Illinois, shattered more than 200 years of history Tuesday night by winning election as the first African-American president of the United States, according to projections by NBC News.

    Congratulations to America.
    And McCain just gave an impressive conceding speech, that I hope hits home with the disappointed supporters.

    What did you expect from those psychos at his rally's? :lol:

    Man, it sure is gonna be quiet in the political section from now on, most of the fun was being outraged at the latest Palin/McCain antics. I'll miss them...especially Tina Fey as Palin ;)

    Small change compared to what a democratic president & majority congress can do in four years.

    When was the last time anyone posted about Bush? At this point, if he does anything at all it's an improvement.

    Honestly, I greatly look forward to seeing the Republican party clean house after this election and with any luck all the spend thrift right wing religious nutjobs will get tossed out and the party will return to it's former self. If not, Obama will be in for 8 years.

    Obama will need the Republicans more than ever. Remember folks, Obama says he isnt like Democrats before him. He promises change, big change, and I would sure like to see him pull it off in the current political climate he now enjoys because after the honeymoon is over, he wont be able to use the Race card, the Change card or the "Im just the new guy" card anymore. He is going to have to re-establish or re-polarize his own party and get them organized again. If the Democrats could have had their way, I dont think OBAMA would be president now. Perhaps now more than ever, the American people will have their faith in American Government restored over the next four years.
    And enough Bush comments please, I havent seen one intelligient post about Bush from anyone in a long time or anyone here old enough to remember the last 40 years of American Politics.
    If America is going to move forward into a new age of reforms, Mr. Obama will have a very tough battle ahead, so he needs partnerships now and even forge new friendships, because his party is still splintered and in need of a political enema.

    Really looks like we are being set up for the end of the world folks.

    Get ready for
    -Our next Great Depression
    -A new World church
    -Mark of the beast

    If you can't see it I ask to find your faith before it is too late.

    Isn't he a child of mixed race parents?

    As you say Omega I think it is quite sad that most people seem to be focusing on his colour rather than his politics. America has a long way to come to accept him I think for this, I hope it happens. I think there will be many attempts on his life over the years.

    OK so now it's almost all forgiven. Good luck America - from one of your former and most vocal opponents. ;)

    I logged in just to say that - but I'm sure the guys here with a long memory will remember me.... :D
