Yesterday, the Americans named their 44th president, in the person of the 47-year old Barack Obama. Obama won the presidential spot together with his vice-presidential candidate, Joe Biden. The two candidates won the election that changes the course of its nation, the first-ever Black- American president. The election was so favorable on the side of the Democrats, for they don’t just bagged the presidential spot but also winning the majority of both the lower and upper house of the Senate.
McCain. on the other hand, showed his respects on the newly-elected president and accepted his defeat for he believed that the Americans casted their votes to the worthy candidate.I guess that would be great , for Obama needs all the support he can have in helping him saving the country’s financial situation.
And here are the election results:
Obama – President
Electoral Votes: 349
Popular Votes: 63,423,384
Electoral Votes: 162
Popular Votes: 56,079,50
The date has been marked. On November 4, 2008, the whole world will be waiting for who among the two presidential candidates will triumph. Tuesday will be the end of the hasty and controversial election of all time, the battle between Republican candidate, John McCain, and of Democrats’ hoping to be the be first-ever Black American President, Barack Obama.
Both two candidates shows potentials on being a good president but only one shall win. And I hope that the one who will be named as the president will be a great help to their country’s ailing economy and to be more helpful to other nations.
And for me, I am always a supporter of the Democrats but I still have high hopes that the American citizens knows well and would vote for the right candidate that will unite all the Americans and would make their country a better place for everybody, even for foreigners.
