Finally, after a long hard battle by Senator Barack Obama, he is now officially the President of the United States. He is the first black president of the United States over a landslide victory against Senator John McCain. His election as president may pave the way for change to the United States of America.

The Democratic Party celebrated for the victory of their presidential candidate Barack Obama but they are also celebrating their majority in the House of Senate! So what awaits the United States’ president as he sits on his presidential chair? There are many issues to tackle that affects everyone around the world such as the global warming and the worst financial crisis of the century as well as terrorism and poverty.

During his first speech as the winner of the election, he said that he will be challenged by the two greatest challenges of a lifetime; the global warming and the crisis and he also added that he promises to be honest with each of the problems he face even if not everyone would agree with his decisions.

On the other hand, Senator John McCain also ended his dream of becoming president and said that the American people have spoken clearly. At his age, this was his last fight for Presidency.

It was indeed a close fight with 52% of votes for Obama and 47% of votes for McCain but Obama got 338 Electoral Votes while McCain only got 141 and because of this, Obama was declared the winner because a candidate only needs 270 electoral votes to be announced as the winner.

So, is Obama’s win the answer to the world’s financial crisis? Will this be the end to America’s political problems and horrible government? It’s too early to say but let’s just hope that the majority elected the right person for the most important job not only in the United States but throughout the world.
