NEW VISION, UGANDA’S LEADING WEB SITE: THOUSANDS of youth and parents on Tuesday night poured onto the streets of Philadelphia in Pennsylvania, after Democrat Barack Obama was pronounced the winner in the US presidential elections. Pennsylvania, with 21 electoral votes, was critical to the elections and saw the rival candidates come back and forth to campaign there. Famous for being one of the battle states, Obama won the state by 55% to 45%. The city has a big concentration of African Americans. After Obama’s victory speech, the residents in the city, which was the capital of USA before Washington, jumped onto roads, honking their cars, while others trumpeted through their windows. They marched for over three kilometres, praising Obama. Public transport taxis, buses and pennsylvaniamap_1.jpgprivate vehicles joined in the celebrations, honking and dancing from car windows. They held Obama campaign placards, with his running mate Senator Joe Biden. The placards carried messages like ‘Yes We can’, ‘Yes we Did’ and ‘Pennsylvania for Obama Biden’ and ‘We have Overcome’.

NEW YORK TIMES: Senator Barack Obama, Democrat of Illinois, opened an early lead in electoral-college votes on Tuesday night, and won the crucial state of Pennsylvania, which Senator John McCain had made central to his election strategy, according to preliminary voting returns. Mr. McCain’s loss in Pennsylvania, along with a defeat in New Hampshire, another key Democratic state he had hoped to win, significantly narrowed his potential path to victory, and made it all the more vital for him to carry the states that President Bush won four years ago. But all the television networks called the state of Ohio for Mr. Obama, delivering him a key swing state — with 20 electoral votes — that President Bush carried in both 2004 and 2000. A loss there would deal a fatal blow to Mr. McCain’s hopes. MORE

HOT DOCUMENT: Letter From The President

jonathan —

I’m about to head to Grant Park to talk to everyone gathered there, but I wanted to write obamamessiah.jpgto you first.

We just made history.

And I don’t want you to forget how we did it.

You made history every single day during this campaign — every day you knocked on doors, made a donation, or talked to your family, friends, and neighbors about why you believe it’s time for change.

I want to thank all of you who gave your time, talent, and passion to this campaign.

We have a lot of work to do to get our country back on track, and I’ll be in touch soon about what comes next.

But I want to be very clear about one thing…

All of this happened because of you.

Thank you,
