Obama won. Oprah Winfrey was in attendance. Kenya declared a National Holiday in honor of Obama's victory. And Palin lost.
At least America has not completely lost their senses.
As for McCain, well... There is no substitute for victory. But I think his speech was very well delivered.
"This is an historic election, and I recognize the special significance it has for African-Americans and the special pride that must be theirs tonight," McCain said. "These are difficult times for our country. And I pledge to him tonight to do all in my power to help him lead us through the many challenges we face."
Applauded. Luoy. Especially cos I have a soft spot for grandfatherly looking people.
Anyway, it was not a surprise. It's going to be interesting to watch how Obama's gonna handle such great expectations.
Here's what I think is the most compelling line in Obama's speech at Grant Park:
"It's been a long time coming, but tonight, because of what we did on this date in this election at this defining moment, change has come to America."
