Well done America, a victory against Monarchy-like nepotism.

Though I reckon McCain is gonna be president, there's too many reasons for the nasty people of the US to vote against Obama.

Yes, but those numbers for Hillary don't include caucuses, nor do they count anything for Obama in Michigan.

And don't forget that the Democrats shattered records for turnouts and new people registering, and that many Clinton supports will back Obama.

Bush's record is going bye-bye.

yes

54,958,186 voted against him in Nov 2000

and even more in 2004

60,252,938 voted against him then


for a total of 115,211,124


I bet that record will stand for a very long time, perhaps 100 years

I disagree, population and divisive campaigning will only increased.

john mccain would make a great president and probably should have been the guy running the show the past 8 years... that said, obama looked like john frickin kennedy last night. he just has that electricity about him.

that said, i could have sworn he wrapped up the nomination like 2 months ago.

Yep, its also the demographic that votes in the highest numbers on election day. Obama does best with the demographic that either just doesn't vote, or would skip voting on election day for a booty call or beer.

Don't forget that 15% of White registered Democrats consider RACE important in choosing the next President. One wonders how less liberal independents and Republicans feel on that issue.

I am absolutely certain that generations from now, we will be able to look back and tell our children that this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal.
Praise Jeebus!

Polls show voter doubts on Obama, McCain on economy - Yahoo! News

"Then there is the matter of race. The Illinois senator, who nailed down the Democratic nomination Tuesday by securing the final convention delegates he needed, will have to navigate the always explosive question of race in America like no presidential candidate before him."

"Before he can win the White House, he must cope with a daunting finding: One in seven white voters of his own party said in exit polls that race was important in choosing their candidate. Of that group, not only did two-thirds vote for Clinton, but nearly six in 10 said they would rather vote for McCain in November or stay home than support Obama."
