OUR PRESIDENT.......Our Moment in Time....
Watch as MSNBC Calls it at 11PM and then watch the people Celebrate....really stunning...and yes, it was so right that Keith Olbermann announced it.....
The Obamas Coming to Grant Park on Election Night....and taking the Stage....and President Obama's Victory Speech,
I can't find the Obama Victory Speech on Youtube, but there is plenty of The Victory Parties posted, this one is amazing, this is Spontaneous Partying in the Streets of DC, with people dancing in the Streets and Honking Horns.....cars stopped where they are when they heard the News....amazing.....
Grant Park In Chicago....Celebrating...( very different scene than 1968...)
MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT UPDATES OF ELECTION NIGHT:::::
From Wapo Campaign Trail:::"At about 2:15 a.m., there were maybe 1,000 people, possibly more, still going strong.
They'd started, many of them, at 14th and U Streets, or in Adams Morgan, or Dupont Circle. Word got around that the White House was the place to be. You didn't need to be told: You could see people streaming in that direction on all the major arteries of town.How long would this last? If there was even a flicker of fatigue in the crowd as the hour grew late, no worries: Reinforcements were on the way. You could hear them far up on the 16th Street, heading south. There were hundreds of them. Call it an even 500. They were Howard University students"....there were soon thousands in the streets celebrating in front of the Whitehouse...2 am on....Bush probally did not get much sleep....And the police stood and watched...and smiled..
The Letter Barack Obama Sent to his supporters as he headed over to Grant Park::::
"I'm about to head to Grant Park to talk to everyone gathered there, but I wanted to write to you first.
We just made history.
And I don't want you to forget how we did it.
You made history every single day during this campaign -- every day you knocked on doors, made a donation, or talked to your family, friends, and neighbors about why you believe it's time for change.
I want to thank all of you who gave your time, talent, and passion to this campaign.
We have a lot of work to do to get our country back on track, and I'll be in touch soon about what comes next.
But I want to be very clear about one thing...
All of this happened because of you.
Thank you, "
