Congratulations America!

This is why America is a great nation. A black boy, abandoned by his African father and raised by a single mother who seemed lost and continuously looking like most of us for meaning in her life. Looks as if only in America can a black man who attended elementary school in Indonesia, partly raised by working class grandparents make his way through Columbia and Harvard.

Well done President Barack Obama. Well done noble Senator John McCain. You guys do your country a great service.

We wish America the very best.

this prophetic word came true tonight:

"I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal."

I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at a table of brotherhood.

I have a dream that one day even the state of Mississippi, a desert state, sweltering with the heat of injustice and oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice.

I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.

I have a dream today."

He's half-white anyway. And Oklahoma voted for McCain.

Seriously, great speech by McCain.

Let's see what's next this chapter.
