Sports of Boston would like to congratulate Sen. Barack Obama (D – IL) on winning the 2008 Presidential Election. He garnered more than the 270 electoral votes needed to win the race to the White House.
No matter your party affiliation, you have to hand it to Obama. He’s now the first African-American President-elect in United States history. Sen. John McCain was gracious in defeat, and gave Obama a hell of a fight all the way.
“Senator Obama has achieved a great thing for himself and for his country…But that he managed to do so by inspiring the hopes of so many millions of Americans who had once wrongly believed that they had little at stake or little influence in the election of an American president is something I deeply admire and commend him for achieving,” said McCain.
