Barack Obama was elected the 44th president, and first
African-American president, of the United States,
receiving 364 electoral votes in an election that saw
perhaps the highest turnout among registered voters in a
century. "If there's anyone out there who still doubts
that America is a place where all things are possible,"
Obama told supporters, "tonight is your answer." "The
American people have spoken, and they have spoken
clearly," said John McCain in a teary-eyed concession
speech. "What an awesome night for you," President Bush
said to Obama. "His choice, basically, is whether he is
going to be Uncle Sam... or Uncle Tom," said Ralph Nader,
who received roughly 1 percent of the popular vote.
