BARACK OBAMA ELECTED PRESIDENT
The Washington Post
Election Special – Commemorative Edition
Wednesday, November 5, 2008
“OBAMA MAKES HISTORY” announces the headline. “U.S. DECISIVELY ELECTS FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT. DEMOCRATS EXPAND CONTROL OF CONGRESS.” Barack Hussein Obama handily defeats Arizona Senator John McCain who was unable to overcome his Republican ties (real or imagined) to the Bush Administration. Senator Obama addressed a crowd of 125,000 in Chicago’s Grant Park saying, “If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where all things are possible, who still wonders if the dream of our founders is alive in our time, who still questions the power of our democracy, tonight is your answer.”
