Obama has won

I haven't been able to vote all that long, I'm only 26 but this is the first election I really been excited and uplifted by the result. That's all I have to say, someone else once put it much better than I could:

And so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.

I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal."

I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.

I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

Go here for the full speech. We did it Dr. King, we elected a black man because he was the best candidate not because of his race. I wish you had lived to see this day.
