Change Has Come - Obama, President Of The United States

Mr. Barack Obama is the new President Of The United States. He is the first African-American to become the President Of America. Mr.Obama is young and charismatic but has little experience on the national level. In the fore-front he has to face the economic crisis, two unfinished wars and global uncertainty. Obama quoted "The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep."

Mr. Barack Obama is the 44th President Of America. He had easily beaten Republican John McCain in the Presidential Race to sit in the Oval Office. 

Mr. Barack Obama bagged more than 50 percent of the popular vote and won in those crucial states which in 44 Years of history, Republicans hadn't won. His victory was in the Major States like Indiana, Virginia, Ohio, Florida, Pennsylvania etc. Ohio and Florida were previously won by the Bush Administration, and were the main key to the win of George W. Bush. This time both the states were favorable to Obama.

Obama is expected to move quickly and begin assembling his White House and selecting cabinet nominees. Sources said that Obama's front runner and his Rep. from Illinois, Mr. Rahm Emanuel was to be the next Chief Of Staff.

On Jan.20, 2009, when Obama and John Biden takes their oath in the office. Democrats will control both the Congress as well as the White House, for the first time since 1994.

This is one of the costliest campaigns in U.S History. People voted for Obama, as they were fed-up of the eight years rule of George W.Bush. They had seen their country's unemployment rise as well as home foreclosures and stock markets tumbling, which erased trillions of dollars saved by the American People.

McCain was quoted as saying " The American people have spoken, and they have spoken clearly. This is a historic election, and I recognize the special significance it has for African-Americans and the special pride that must be theirs tonight. These are difficult times for our country. And I Pledge to him tonight to do all in my power to help him lead us through the many challenges we face."

The States which were won by Obama are as follows:
California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, the district of Columbia, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Virginia, Vermont, Washington and Wisconsin.

Almost 136.6 Million Americans voted for the Presidential Election. The year 2008, was deemed as a 64.1 Percent Turnout Rate. The figures were researched by Mr. Michael McDonald at The George Mason University. He also quoted that this was the highest turnout since 1908, which was 65.7 Percent.

Barack Obama has won, but now he must deliver what he promised. He claims that he will follow his book, "The Audacity Of Hope", which is cetainly audacious for a senator from Illinois to run for president. His campaign was so strong that he ousted Hillary Clinton, and raised more money than any Presidential Candidate in history. He generated more than $700 Million to run his campaign over a time of two years.

Hundred of villagers in Kogelo, Kenya, Barack Obama's Kenyan family homestead, erupted into song and dance at the news that the nation's favourite son had won the U.S presidential Election. Shouts by women, calling "Obama, Obama", were being yelled. People were clapping and dancing in joy in the village where his grandmother lives. People were glued to the giant screens watching results unfold. And as soon as the results came in, people danced and ran aimlessly in the muddy streets to congratulate and hug each other. Children and youths sang songs and people danced, even though it rained and thunderbolted the whole night.

Bush is the past, and Obama is the Future. The journey begins now, of the promises made by the newly elected president.
