PRESIDENT-ELECT BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA!!!


* All the networks just called it for Barack Hussein Obama, the next President of the United States.

* Fox News showed Jesse Jackson quietly crying.

* Electoral vote totals so far: Obama 334, McCain 144, with 54 electoral votes still too close to call, including Arizona and North Carolina.

* McCain just conceded, very graciously. Too bad the crowd couldn't be as gracious, but the campaign he and Palin ran had a lot to do with that.

* On to Grant Park, waiting for our President-Elect to make his speech, woohoo!

Update: 11-05-08 12:27 a.m. EST

* Obama speaks. It's a bittersweet moment, Toot not being here to witness this.

* Obama: WE ARE AND ALWAYS WILL BE THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

* Now the work of rebuilding our nation begins.
