Obama Wins 2008 Presidential Election
Obama only needed 270 electoral votes to
win the 2008 U.S. Presidential election,
but he found enough supporters to earn him

Conventional swing states like Ohio and

the 44th President of the United States
and the first African-American to sit in
the Oval Office.
