44th President

Amidst the negativity of the world's economic status is the positivity of the US President's election and inauguration. Barack's initial win for the Democratic seat was victor enough, beating out former First Lady, Hilary Clinton. His eloquency in speech and charismatic nature drew in not only the entire nation, but the entire world.

He is symbolic of the United States' need for change. He is their light at the end of the long 8-year tunnel.

Being the first Afro-American President, he is evidence to America's desire to move away from the old, and in with the new. New ideals, new discipline, a new way of being-- to be seen in a better light in the eyes of the world.

We can only hope that he makes a difference, while on January 20th 2009, he made history.

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.

--Barack Obama

Victory speech in US presidential election, home state of Chicago, November 4, 2008.
