Oh, Happy Day!


President-Elect Barack Hussein Obama!

At the precise hour of 11:-00 EST, the networks, after biting on their lips for about the past 2-hours, called it.

Pretty fucking incredible!

NBC: OBAMA ELECTED 44TH PRESIDENT; Illinois senator to become first African-American executive in U.S. history

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 in the history of the United States, according to projections by NBC News.

Obama reached the 270 electoral votes he needed for election at 11 p.m. ET, when NBC News projected that he would win California, Washington and Oregon. The Associated Press reported shortly after 11 p.m. that Obama’s opponent, Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona, had called Obama to offer his congratulations.
I'll save the satire and snark for tomorrow, and the days ahead.

Tonight is a night to savor, to reflect, and to celebrate the incredible accomplishment of Barack Obama, Team Obama, and every single citizen who voted for the change and new direction this country desperately needs.

So, shout it out loud ...

Oh, Happy Day!
