I have to say, I never thought I would see an African/American becoming president of the US in my lifetime....It is almost overwhelming. The beauty is that Barack won 2+ to 1, a real mandate, not the fake one that GW said he recieved 4 years ago. The politics in the US will never be the same. John McCain should have been president 8 years ago, instead, his party pushed him aside in favor of the ignoramus that sits before us now. This time, McCain failed when he picked the equally ignorant "hockey mom", trying to grab at votes from various demographics, instead of picking someone he seriously believed in, who could show some leadership, and could move the country forward. What a great time to be alive!!
