Barack Obama: The 44th President of the United States.

Well I guess congratulations are in order for the new President of the United States: Barack Obama! It is a historic night, as we finally celebrate our first black president! I will continue to pray for the direction of our country, and that God would have mercy on us!

Also, here is a nice link to the election map that is very detailed. Also, just click on your state for more indept voting information! Here are some interesting tidbits I found:

1. Tippecanoe was 1 of 15 counties that went democratic in Indiana, with the following stats....
55.3% Obama
47.3% McCain
1.0% Barr

2. Indiana ended up going Democratic, with the following stats
49.9 % - 1,352,356 votes for Obama
49.0% - 1,329,370 votes for McCain
1.1% - 28,980 votes for Barr

3. Bob Barr did his best showing of any state in Indiana with 1.1% of the votes.

4. In Missouri, they passed an admendment to make English the official language in their state...I thought that was a funny one!

5. They voted to ban same sex marriage in California again! Florida and Arizona voted to yes to define marriage between one man and one women! S. Dakota voted yes to ban abortion in their state!
