President-Elect Barack Obama

More people voted for Obama for President of the United States than any other person in history. That is truly staggering to think about.

The latest numbers I've seen give Obama 53% of the vote. He is the first Democrat to win more than 50% of the national vote since Jimmy Carter in 1976 and his 53% of the vote is greater than any Democratic presidential candidate since Lyndon Johnson in 1964 ... who used his mandate, in part, to pass the Voting Rights Act that helped make last night's victory possible.
