That’s President Barack Hussein Obama, if you please.
Barack Obama has been elected as the 44th President of these United States.
I would deeply love for Indiana to cast its electoral votes for Obama. At the moment, Indiana is leaning toward Obama with an 8,000 vote lead and 94% of the votes reported. And yet, Wayne County, Indiana — my old home county — has 0% reporting. Come on, Richmond — bring us home.
Senator McCain is giving a gracious concession speech.
Update From the comments:
Regarding Wayne County: according to radio station WKBV, one voting machine malfunctioned in such a way that the votes recorded could not be retrieved. The election officials are awaiting a call from Omaha to figure out the problem.
Update Wayne County results in. Now with 99% of the votes counted, Obama looks like he’s leading Indiana by about 15,000 votes with 2.2 million having been cast.
