OBAMA WINS: This is a moment to behold, a moment for tears, a moment for reflection. Black people and America have come a long way. I am proud to be in America today. I am proud to be a black woman in America. I am proud of all the tens of thousands who fought in the civil rights movement for this day. I am proud of all of the hundreds of thousands of blacks, whites, Hispanics, immigrants, old and young who worked endlessly for months to bring Obama this far. I am proud of Barack and Michelle Obama.
Barack Obama’s win is a win for America and the entire world. I have been weeping, shouting, and answering calls from friends and family as we awaited this moment. This is a day to behold as tens of thousands wait to hear Obama speak tonight in Chicago. God bless America!
