Congratulations Obama

Well, it finally happened, the event which many around the world were talking about occured last night (UK time) and Obama won by a convincing landslide!

With Missouri and North Carolina still left to sort their lives out Obama has 349 electoral college votes, and McCain has 162. Being that the magic number is 270, it was pretty convincing even if the remaining states go to McCain. With almost 120 million votes cast with over 62 million going to Obama he wins with over 50% of the vote ... impressive!!

Now the hard part starts, what is he going to do in his first term in office? What is he going to achieve? Is he going to come through on all his promises about change? Time will tell.

But until then, congratulations again to the Obama camp! :-)
