Congratulations Mr. President-Elect Barack Obama, Our 44th President To Be
It was an exciting and emotional night for me and the rest of this great country of ours Tuesday night. Barack Hussein Obama trounced his opponent, Senator John McCain, in the electoral college vote count and will take the oath of office in January as the 44th President of the United States. The electoral college numbers were 338 for Obama to 156 for McCain. The popular vote was closer...42,451,312 for the president-elect and 39,722,376 for McCain. McCain fought and scrapped as hard and as long as he could, but the state of the economy and his selection of Governor Palin utterly and completely doomed him.
Now the country must come together as one behind President Obama. And we will. My state, Connecticut, went blue with 60 % of the votes going to the next President, whose road ahead will be a tough one. He will inherit the eight year mess caused by George Bush's inept leadership...he was the worst President in my lifetime. No one else even comes close. History will tell our children and grandchildren and great grandchildren exactly that.
God bless you and your family, Barack. I voted for you...now we know that most of us did the exact same thing. And that's good. Everyone, BE WELL.
