Barack Obama has been elected the 44th President of the United States, making him the first African-American elected to the office in our nation’s history.
Obama made his debut on the national stage only four years ago as the keynote speaker at the Democratic National Convention and went on to become a U.S. senator for Illinois. Energizing the Democratic party and a new generation of voters, Obama (a political rock star himself) has nabbed the support of celebs like Oprah and political heavyweights like Edward Kennedy and former Secretary of State Colin Powell.
While his grandmother Madelyn Dunham’s recent death and his breaking off from his pastor Jeremiah Wright have been huge personal blows for the 47-year-old politician, Obama will have the opportunity to share this momentous occasion with his wife Michelle and daughters Malia and Sasha.
Comedian Katt Williams has a new video out on YouTube called “Date A President,” where he likens the presidency to dating.
“I feel like didn’t we just get out of a fucked up relationship? Maybe we don’t need a President right now,” Williams says. “Can we be single as a country for a while? And maybe date a President? See how that works out for a couple of months.”
But after all the zingers and punchlines, Williams says of Barack Obama (even though he believes no one should vote on race), “If you was ever going to vote for a n***, this is the n**** to vote for! Right here, this is the one. Yes, absolutely!”
Blindie hasn’t been coy about who we’re rooting for to lead us through these dark times, and in less than one week, we’ll have the chance to elect Senator Barack Obama as the next President of the United States.
Obama recently made a speech as to why we need to continue to fight harder as his supporters to elect him, ignoring the hype of poll numbers and pundits.
