It is now official, Barack Obama is the 44th president of The United States after winning the 2008 election!
The 47 year old senator is the first African-American to ever become president of the United States. Obama reached the 270 electoral votes that is needed to win an election at 11 p.m. Obama's opponent, John McCain, called and congratulated him on his victory shortly thereafter. McCain, in order to win, needed the democratic states of Ohio and Pennsylvania including the other republican states, but fell short.
Congratulations to Obama, and good luck to him in his upcoming term. May he make the right decisions, not only for the country, but to keep us gaming proud!
