Hats off to the man, the myth, the legend.

For a black man to win the presidency, going through the Clinton Machine, and then everything the Republicans could throw at him, while carrying the name "Hussein" during a war against Islam - that's impressive.

I'm not going to agree with a lot the man does, but I'll give him the respect the office deserves up until the point he proves (through his actions and established policies) that he's not worthy of that respect.

Congratulations President Barack Hussein Obama! God bless you, and God bless America!

Yea, only 150 days a Senator.....

I do have to give him props in killing the Hillary monster. Things could be wores than an Obama Presidency


So much for the myth of the black man being kept down now.....this is an historic event in more ways than just a black man winning the Presidency

Regardless of his party, his policies, whatever...it should be a proud day that America has elected a black president. For whatever our flaws and mistakes have been in the history of our country, this shows that we are a progressive country and re-enforces this is the greatest country.

Its amazing what marketing can do for anybody. My background is in marketing and its classic study in marketing that is for sure. I doubt his leadership and his crap political ideas but his people ran a hell of a campaign.

That much I will agree with. We did look past the race issue, which I hope does validate that there is not as much racism as some would have us think.

Yes they did. And on a vague message. Several talking heads have mentioned that tonight. He ran pretty much as "I am not Bush, you (insert whoever here) are"

And they always will. But if a black man can get elected then I don't find racism to be as oppresive as some like us to think. After all, it did take a shit load of white people to vote for Obama for him to win

He's definitely intelligent, but make no mistake - anyone who works in marketing right now has got to take their hat off in reverence to one of the most skillful marketing campaigns in the history of marketing. All the marketing trade magazines are falling all over themselves to lavish Team Obama with marketer of the year awards. They've blown open a lot of marketing doors with this campaign in the digital marketing environment. It's going to be a real treat looking at all of the case studies that come out about this campign. I personally hope to help my company make a fair amount of money implementing some of their better digital strategies.

I didn't like Bush because he never sounded intelligent at all...was his campaign good, yes it was very smartly run.

I never thought Bush was thoughtful about anything he's always a my way or the highway type of person...

But I'm bias because I have a severe issue with Republicans stances on social issues.

There's a chance, but not a very good one. The Republican establishment is going to come fighting back, but like this election, they're going to find that the party is too fractured to make a serious run at it.

It won't be until 2016 that the Republicans will get an opportunity to make a serious run at it, and they'll have a supercharged Hillary to contend with then. I have a hunch she might be our next seceratary of state. But maybe not. Maybe Obama puts her out to pasture altogether. I doubt it.

We are very likely facing 16 years of Democrat rule. Whatever emerges, people who identify "conservative" had better get serious about putting together a real opposition party that responds to the people, because they're going to have a battle on their hands for the foreseeable future.

I doubt it mainly bc Obama has promised too much crap and is to far to the left. Pendeulum will swing back quicker than that.

No. I think that the base is too fractured. The Republican party has no standard-bearer at this point. There's nobody that the party can agree to rally around. They sold their economic souls back when Nixon cancelled Bretton Woods, and have ever since become the party of corporate socialism - an ideology which has effectively died tonight.

Republicans allowing Bush Jr. to represent their party are a huge reason as to why Obama's marketing strategy worked so well. Obama appears to be the polar opposite of what W represented both psychically and philosophically.

Bush...well, I'm ashamed of our country in the choices they've made in a leader with George Bush Jr.

At least that ugly era is over.

On a side note, if BO were to do nothing as far as international relations, and I mean nothing, not pick up a phone, make a visit, say hello passing on the street to a foreign diplomat, it would be an improvement over the last eight years so lets just put that 'weakness' to bed right now.

There will be enough legitimate reasons to gripe in the future. Tonight let the BO party celebrate their win.

Congratulations.
