The Big Story
The big story is not "just" that Barack Obama has been elected the 44th President of the United States of America. The bigger story is that the American People stepped up to the world's needs, the world's desire, America's survival. We, the People, booted out the worst administration in our history. We finally couldn't take it any more. Why it took the collective conscience so long, is beyond comprehension. The fact that we had such an incredible candidate is a bonus beyond belief.
