As you all know the election on Tuesday was held. We all found out who was president elect. Everyone is happy that Barack Obama won!! Everyone was super excited on Tuesday and even the next day. You would see people in Obama T-shirts celebrating. Grant Park in Chicago was very crowded with happy Democrats.   I thought he made a great acceptance speech when we all found out that he had won. What stands out to me the most is when he said “The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep. We may not get there in one year or even in one term. But, America, I have never been more hopeful than I am tonight that we will get there.” We all know he promises change in America but as he said it will take a long time.   Also Obama being the first African American president brings up a lot of issues. He is expected to follow through his plans and if he doesn’t people will start to hate him. He is already a target in the racist community. He does have a lot of body guards so he is protected. Let’s just hope he changes America when he is president   – Tatiana
