Nice job by CNN and MSNBC at 10pm, as they announced their official projections that Barack Obama has been elected the 44th President of the United States.
Their anchors then shut up for several minutes as cameras cut from Chicago to New York to Spellman College to other venues, showing crowds of cheering supporters. Some of them were crying with joy and the realization they have been witnesses and participants to history.
Not only has Obama become the first black President, but when the totals are finalized, he will have gotten more votes than any other politician in the history of the USA. The only sour note in all this is that his grandmother didn’t live one more day to see the boy she raised become The Man.
