selection '08: obama selected as US president

from yahoo: Obama wins California, Hawaii, Oregon, Colorado, Nevada, and Washington, giving him 338 electoral votes to McCain's 141 (AP). He will be the 44th president of the United States. After a tight battle against Republican Sen. John McCain, Obama has become the first African American president in the history of the United States.

mccain's suspiciously staged concession speech,
or: the ringer bows out (like dole or kerry)

obama's complete victory speech
from raw replay: Obama promised “a new dawn of American leadership” at his victory speech in Chicago.
