HE DID IT! Self-professed “skinny black kid from the South Side” defeats Hillary Rodham Clinton

We have all witnessed the greatest upset in American political history. Senator Barack Obama, 46, has been chosen by the Democratic party as their nominee who will compete against Senator John McCain, 71, in November, according to a new Associated Press delegate tally.

It is such an exciting time in American history- we’re witnessing the first ever black nominee campaign for the presidency. We all need to pay close attention to everything that happens now, because this will be one of those moments where people say “Where were you when…” We’ll be able to recount this historic moment in the great history that is the United States of America.

Obama has managed to clinch the nomination based on genius political strategy, adept management of campaign finances, a unifying message of change and hope and an unwillingness to take the low road. He has revolutionized the way political campaigns function, catalyzed the participation of America’s youth, and told us that the “American dream” is not dead- rather, it has been lying dormant for almost eight years, and he brings enough energy and enthusiasm to resurrect it.

Obama’s candidacy makes me so proud of our country. His story couldn’t have happened anywhere else in the world. We are the first white Western nation to give a black man a real shot at the presidency, and we need to take a step back from the What-Will-The-Clintons-Do-Next-Saga and pay attention to Barack Obama’s historic candidacy.

Barack Obama embodies America at its best, and I feel privileged to watch it all happen. Obama ’08!
