Obama: This Is Our Moment

Political 'unknown' to the 1st Black-American presidential nominee in U.S. history in a space of less than four years!

Barack Obama has finally made history when last night he became the first African-American in U.S. history to clinch a major party's presidential nomination.

The 46-year-old Illinois senator defeated former first lady Hillary Clinton, a handsdown favourite at the start of the race, in the longest, most tightly contested Democratic presidential race ever. In his speech, before 17,000 supporters, while 15,000 more listened outside, he was quoted as saying: "Tonight we mark the end of one historic journey with the beginning of another — a journey that will bring a new and better day to America," Obama whose father was a Kenyan went on to say "... This is our moment. This is our time. Our time to turn the page on the policies of the past.

Obama, just a step away from the White House, now faces the main hard battle, against Sen. John McCain, the presumptive Republican candidate to become the President of the USA.

What are his chances?

Will Mrs. Clinton's supporters automatically vote Obama, whether or not she is his running mate?

What do you guys say?

Niaje chali wa mtaa?

Since I know that JK is reading this blog and therefore could leave here a comment (Anon of course since I do not think he will dare to do it open) since the outcome has contradicted all he ever said and thought before, like

Hillary: YES - Obama: NO. Too early, America is not ready yet for a black President.

Would be interesting to hear what JK says now? I guess he will say to wait until the final Elections are over?

Fabulous, just fabulous. Onward!
And H.R. Clinton too. This country has outdone itself in just ONE election year. I see him beating J. McCain (someone aptly characterized the republicans as toxic), even without Clinton, but would be nice to have both. The battle being won in just ONE stroke.

Is that Michelle, Obama's erstwhile other half? Wow! She has really blossomed!

That Obama has made history is unquestionable. That he will make it in November is 50-50. He has built a formidable campaign and with the right strategy he will trance McCain. He seems and has been the only candidate who can be believed. But much as America is ready to diversify even at the top, an equal number (the less educated, old and racist) don't think so. We can only wait and see what happens. Me think he will make it.

We are all happy for him.

I think he will win, with or without Hillary. I cannot see a situation where a majority of Americans will favour a candidate that embraces an endless war that serves no American interests. Bill Clinton was bequethed an economy that was on its knees by Bush 41. He revived it and surpassed any economic heights reached in 50 years. Now Bush 43 has taken it to the ICU. These republican failures will surely work for Barack. He can spice it up with some eloquent and beautiful speeches and voila!

If I was Obama, I would resist pressure to name Hillary my running mate. She is not only proved to be a bad loser but also a very negative person with some misguided sense of entitlement. Of course she has a huge following, but I think a majority of that following will back Barack whether she approves of it or not. And still how can Obama accomodate Bill Clinton in his white house? Hapana.

Obama is not a jango, otherwise by now he would have engaged in the most divisive rhetoric eg Hillary ni adui, or wacheni mhubiri wright, huyo ni ndugu yangu. In fact, would have organized the disreputable chicago gangs to deal with billary. By last week he'd have been whining that Hillary was planning to rig and would have stock piled guns (and stones) for his pea-brained supporters. No, he cant be jango. Too civil. Try something else.

Anon 1:47 ...Meza wembe, Obama dedicated his win to his grandmother in Kogelo...That is in Alego.....He is a Jakogelo.....It is just simple fact that Hillary did not steal the elections...OTherwise in the whole of kenyan luos are known to be civilised, intellectuals...their only limitation is they are arrogant and proud and they hit the target (stone throwing) (when they are rattled) and you dont classify a whole tribe just because of a few. The same way i will not call all kyuks thieves just because of the Murungarus of this world....I hope you are getting the picture

Gentleman and Mcheku, The Audacity of Hope indeed!

There will always be people like Anon @ 1.47 who will never be able to give praise where it is due even if the whole world is doing so. The man has fought one hell of a battle and proven the pessimists wrong, yet it is too painful for others to swallow... People all over the world are happy for his many achievements in such a few short years of his life. Malaysia, China, Germany and most African countries are lauding this feat... The world is yearning for a change in US policies and politics because they affect the rest of the world. It is indeed high time for people to stop being negative just for the heck of it. It is quite juvenile.

So he's from Alego. Is that where all the smart Jaluos are from?

Obama may challenge George Washington as the second NASCAR President in history to go from 0 to 60 in the shortest time frame, and neither may have been legitimate in the sense that either was anticipated to be the nominee of a political party under the Constitution - since neither existed at the time, and both are burdened by recent events as not living up to their potential in the tradition of why they were created.
