Because of Barack Obama, this is the first time in a very loooooooooooong time I can say that I am truly proud to be an American! I thought I'd never see the day a person of color would be president of the United States. If you think in 1965, Black people were being murdered for voting. 43 years later, the first black president. THIS IS AMAZING. Obama proved this country and the whole world that nothing is impossible. America has finally grown up! And I'm honored to have taken part in this important piece of history!

In congratulating President-Elect Obama, Kevin Rudd, the Prime Minister of Australia, said it best:

Forty-five years ago Martin Luther King had a dream of an America where men and women would be judged not on the colour of their skin but on the content of their character. Today what America has done is turn that dream into a reality.

Change has finally come to America!
