Barack Obama to be the next President of the United States

  |   by ws1    Bookmark and Share
It seems like only a short time ago that Barack Obama was a long-shot candidate when he visited Santa Barbara City College in 2007. Now he is the President Elect of the United States. Aside from the groundbreaking racial implications, Obama is radically different than past presidents in other important ways. His candor, humility and directness are astonishing in an age where so many are jaded, indirect and pandering. Here is a picture of him last year, taken by Warren Schultheis at the beginning of the primary season. Even then, the crowd was swelling with excitement. Of course, the Jury is still out on Obama. He's certainly got his work cut out for him. But no one can deny the long list of 'firsts' that he has brought to American politics.
