Be sure to read my column from this week's Western Tribune, which follows this post.
Barack Obama has just been declared the winner of the presidential race. America has just elected an African American as president!!!
Thank the young people.
Thank the community organizers.
Thank Robert Gibbs, David Plouffe and the other Obama campaign organizers. Thank all of the volunteers, here in Bessemer and across the nation.
Thank all Americans who voted for taking part in the historical election.
Final numbers are not in. I can not comment on the electoral college results. They just called Nevada for Obama!!!
President elect Barack Obama is about to speak in Grant Park, I wish I were there, but being here with Michelle Obama yesterday was good enough.
Let's go party. I am taking a break from blogging for a few days.
