Senator Barack Obama has Won the 2008 Presidential Election

November 5, 2008


I…I’m shocked.

I often hate to discuss politics (such a polarizing effect that topic has on people) but I just can’t pass this opportunity up.

I never thought I’d see this day. At least, not until very recently. Barack Obama has won the Presidential election and will soon become the 44th President of the United States of America and America’s first African-American President.

This is huge. My earlier theories have been demolished. I once thought America wasn’t ready for an African-American President. This election has proven me wrong.

I’m pretty much overwhelmed with emotion right now. By casting my first ballot, I’ve helped make history. I can look back on this election with pride 50 years from now and realize that I participated in this momentous occasion. Wow. What a feeling.

What a day this has been. To participate in such a historic event…Well, I’ve made my mark on history. Maybe there’s something to this “voting” thing after all.
