Barack Obama Elected President of the United States

Change is well on its way. Barack Obama will be the nation's 44th President. As polls closed on the West coast, its been projected that he has received enough electoral votes to pass the 270-vote threshold.

As of now, Barack Obama is projected to win California, Washington, Oregon, and Hawaii. He also is projected to win Virginia, a state where the Democrats have not won since 1964.

This is truly a historical and proud day in America. He's not just a Black President but a leader for all Americans. We're hoping that this new term can bring the United States prosperity, peace and happiness. What are your thoughts and emotions at this point?

UPDATE: As of 8:17PM PST, Barack Obama has 306 Electoral Votes.

UPDATE: As of 8:38PM PST, Barack Obama has 338 Electoral Votes.
