All Hail the Chief
CNN is projecting we've got a new president.
As of 11 p.m., it's roughly 297 Electoral votes compared to 139 votes for John McCain. in addition to winning all of New England, Obama is projected to win Washington, California, Oregon, Nevada, Virginia and a handful of states in the midwest.
Earlier tonight, I was at work when one of my coworkers, a black woman, turned to me and said she didn't think he was going to do it. I told her to wait until after 8 pm to start making projections.
Whether you voted for him or not, you can't help but feel a ping in your heart. We've come this far. We've got a long way to go, but my God, we've got a black President.
