Barack Obama and his FamilyBarack Obama only needed 270 electoral votes to win the 2008 U.S. Presidential election, but he found enough supporters to earn him over 340 votes in the electoral college. Conventional swing states like Ohio and Florida voted early in Obama's favor and he even managed to win over historically republican states like Virginia and Indiana. His lead came early on Tuesday, November 4, and within a few short hours of poll closings, Obama solidified his place as the 44th President of the United States and the first African-American to sit in the Oval Office.

Although his race did not play a major role in his campaign, the effect on the African-American population was difficult to ignore. Black politicians and leaders wept as they watched Obama win the Presidency, many reflecting on Black history and rejoicing in the future of African-Americans in society and politics. With record numbers at the poles and overwhelming support from all areas of politics and voters, it was clear that Obama appealed to not only the black voters, but all of America.

Barack Obama started his campaign for president almost two years prior to this election and drew funding and support in excess of $700 million, a record for campaign donations. Critics and supporters alike agree that his staff used the funds wisely and that Obama chose his advisors well. Having won both the popular vote as well as the electoral vote (a first for Democrats since Jimmy Carter in 1976), Obama must now choose his White House staff of advisors.

Within days of his election, Obama met with White House officials and began choosing the select group of individuals who will help advise him once he takes office. According to his staff, Obama started making these decisions many weeks ago and his advanced planning came to fruition within days of his election when he asked Illinois Representative Rahm Emanuel to be his White House Chief of Staff. Emanuel, a long time friend and supporter of Obama and former advisor to President Clinton, accepted the offer.

Obama will be stepping into the Presidency with a Democratic majority in Congress, a first over a decade. While both the McCain and Obama campaigns boasted governmental change, many critics claim that one reason for overwhelming democratic votes are due to the unpopularity of of the current Republican Bush administration.

With less than three months until his inauguration, Obama has quickly taken steps to prepare himself for the challenges ahead. The election came at a decisive time in American history: George W. Bush will be leaving office in the middle of an economic crisis, pressing environmental changes, and two wars still in play, giving Obama a difficult beginning to his first term.

Shortly after Obama accepted his victory, he received a call from President Bush welcoming him to the White House and promising an easy transition. In his speech to the American people, Obama once again promised change but also said that the "the road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep".

Barack Obama Quotes Barack Obama Famous Quotes

I don’t oppose all wars. What I am opposed to is a dumb war. What I am opposed to is a rash war.
Barack Obama -
War - Stupid

People don't expect government to solve all their problems. But they sense, deep in their bones, that with just a slight change in priorities, we can make sure that every child in America has a decent shot at life, and that the doors of opportunity remain open to all. They know we can do better.
