Barack Hussein Obama is the President Elect of the United States of America! Not only has he won but he has won a crushing victory. He won both Ohio and Florida - states that were each pivotal in the last two elections. He won Virginia and is winning in Indiana, North Carolina and Montana, states that Republicans would never have dreamed could go into the Democratic column.

It's looking now (it's late where I am) that Obama could get around 364 electoral votes, possibly 367. This is a great day for African Americans and I am very happy for them. I can't imagine the joy they must feel right now. But make no mistake this is not just their moment. This is a victory for a national movement that involved people of all races, ages, genders and regions.
As I write this, Prop 8 in California is too close to call. I can't express how much I hope it fails.
It's a new dawn!
