Barack Obama, a 47-year-old first-term senator from Illinois, shattered more than 200 years of history Tuesday night by winning election as the first African-American president in the history of the United States, according to projections by NBC News.

Obama reached the 270 electoral votes he needed for election at 11 p.m. ET, when NBC News projected that he would win California, Washington and Oregon. The Associated Press reported shortly after 11 p.m. that Obama’s opponent, Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona, had called Obama to offer his congratulations.

Campaigning as a technocratic agent of change in Washington pathbreaking civil rights figure, Obama swept to victory over McCain , whose running mate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, was seeking to become the nation’s first female vice president.

    I can’t Wight to see who Obama will disappoint first. The fascist woyana supporter or the real Ethiopians. Thanks god I am not one of them. Even thou I am real Ethiopian and US citizen I did not vote for Obama or mc Cain, because I don’t see the difference between these two (democrat or republican). As every body know Americans never stand for real freedom and democracy on her history. Americans always stand for their interest only. So what is the use of voting for one of them? So the chance 99.9% Obama will stand with fascist meles zanawe. Mark my word. My Ethiopian brother if you vote for Obama ready to cry like a baby. Can you do me a fever? pleas don’t cry here because I am tired for that.

    AIGAFORUM SENDS A COGRAGULATION MESSAGE TO OBAMA, BUT WE ALL KNOW THAT DEEP INSIDE THEY ARE UPSET AND SAD, BECAUSE THE TYRANNY called MELES THAT THEY WORSHIP WILL NOT BE GETTING THE KIND OF SUPPORT THAT HE WAS GETTING FROM BUSH ADMINSTRATION. THAT IS WITH NO DOUBT A VICTORY TO THE OPRESSED PEOPLE OF ETHIOPIA AND A SLAP ON THE FACE FOR MELES AND HIS ALLIES SPECIALLY FOR HARD CORE ELEMENTS LIKE AIGAFORUM EDITORS.
    BUT WE THE VOICE OF THE VOICELESS IN THE OPPOSITION MUST BE SMART ENOUGH TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE OPPORTUNTY THAT OBAMA IS GOING TO BRING ABOUT & WE DO NOT AFFORD TO LET MELES & Co. out smart us this time around, because there is no question that they will no try to do everything to turn everything to their advantage. There will be NO STONE THAT THEY WILL LEAVE UNTURNED TO GET ANY POSSIBLE HOLE in the system AND TRUST ME THEY MIGHT FIND SOME HOLE TO PENETERATE The system. THERE are for sure SOME INDIVDUALS EVEN WITHIN DEMOCRATIC LEADERSHIP THAT MELES & Co. has been aquainted with. IT’S THERFORE UP TO US ETHIOPIANS TO STOP MELES AND HIS ALLIES NOT TO KEEP ON HARMING THE VAST MAJOURITY OF ETHIOPIANS USING AMERICANS TAXPAYERS MONEY!!
