President-Elect Obama


And so it came to pass that on Nov. 4, 2008, shortly after 11 p.m. Eastern time, the American Civil War ended, as a black man — Barack Hussein Obama — won enough electoral votes to become president of the United States.
— Thomas Friedman, New York Times

I voted for John McCain because I admire him immensely as a person, and agree with him on many more issues than I do with Senator Obama. And I ask a rhetorical question: Can we McCain voters, without embarrassment, shed a tear of patriotic joy about the historic significance of what just happened? And I offer a short, rhetorical answer.

Yes, we can.
Mike Potemra, conservative blogger at National Review Online.

Sasha and Malia, I love you both so much, and you have earned the new puppy that’s coming with us to the White House.
— Barack Obama, in his acceptance speech

Let every child and every citizen and every new immigrant know that from this day forward: Everything really is possible in America.
Thomas Friedman

I didn't go to sleep until around 2. I was up at 6:30.

We did it. We really freaking did it.
