I am thrilled to be the one to say it: the citizens of the United States of America just elected Barack Hussein Obama as the 44th president of our country. What an incredible night.
Much more to come as the day progresses. But one thought before I close for the evening: nearly 60 million Americans -- if not more -- just hired a black guy to be their President. Of all the incredible things about this campaign, this election, and this victory, that might stand as the most incredible of them all.
Now get to work, Mr. President.
