Tonight, Democratic candidate, Senator Barack Obama is officially elected President of the United States, surpassing the 270 required electoral votes. Obama receives the honor of becoming the country's first African American president. Senator Joe Biden will serve as the country's Vice President upon inauguration. In his concession speech, Senator John McCain congratulated Senator Obama, promising to work with him, and support him as "his president."
November, 4th 2008 is certainly a historic day. Tonight all across the globe, the eyes of the world are on BU Now as the staff celebrates their 200th ever post. Over 400 hundred visitors have already joined the celebration. When reached for comment, editor Shannon Hoffman exclaimed, "I don't even know what to say right now, I am simply overwhelmed with emotion." Special events editor, Andrew Wakelee however, showed little enthusiasm about the accomplishment. "I want more," explained the resident Debby Downer. And more he shall get. Here is to another 200 fantastic posts in the near future!
Instead of discussing Barack Obama or John McCain, I would like to pay respect to State Senator from Schuylkill County named James J. Rhoades.
