Barack Obama will be president
America Saved Barack Obama has defeated John McCain to become the next president of the United States and the first African-American to hold the highest office in the land.
At 8pm west coast time, as the polls closed in California, the country's major television networks projected that Obama would win the 270 electoral votes needed for victory. Within minutes, McCain conceded the election with a speech from his home state of Arizona.
Obama with atypical American family
"The American people have spoken, and they have spoken clearly,” McCain said. "This is an historic election, and I recognize the special significance it has for African-Americans and for the special pride that must be theirs tonight."
Then he called his Republican running mate, Sarah Palin, "one of the best campaigners I've ever seen" and "an impressive new voice in our party."
Palin stood beside him, but did not speak.
At 9pm west coast time, Barack Obama addressed supporters in his home city of Chicago. "If there is anyone out there who still wonders if America is a place where all things are possible, who still wonders if the dream of our founders is alive in our time," he said, "tonight is your answer." ®
Mr. Fisher I looked it up on Google but I still don't know what it is.
Please forgive me
Predilection for spelling
while I keep a close eye on my spelling and grammar and have taught the English language for many years (thus am annoyed with bad use of both as a rule) I do not see why people who are losing any form or argument, or cannot refute another's points must always resort to making fun of their grasp of the English language in it's written form? Seems infantile to me.
We're talking Politics here, not erudition surely? If someone cannot spell or structure well, as long as it can be understood, why make issue? I can only guess that, while their ability to spell or structure linguistically is lacking, perchance your ability to reason/argue coherantly is perhaps as limited? I see this tactic as simple trolling, if not purile schoolyard bullying tactics; throw an attack they cannot refute or defend, be it related to the topic or not, because that stops them being clever.
While not dyslexic myself, I have suffered dyspraxia, which has not stopped me doing rather well in life nor has it limited my intelligence, same applies to dyslexics....did you know that Einstein, Newton and Da Vinci we all supposed dsylexics?
Anyway back to politics please, children
Obama is a stabilizer & peace maker
America as the greatest nation on earth will witness real,and new changes with a great man like Obama.American people are encouraged by his general tenor on economy,and both domestic politics,and foreign policies.Let's hope that America will overcome economic financial crisis with Obama's testing his mettle,and with American people will to be patient in such transitional period.
