Tonight, I just want to record that I saw it for myself.
A new President has been elected to be the 44th President of the United States of America. Congratulations to President-elect Barack Hussein Obama.
A President-elect with a platform that is decisively inclusive and built solidly on hope, unity and change.
A President who embodies a new dawn - in his style, in his temperament, in his approach to organization, in his beliefs, and yes, of course, in his ethnically diverse background.
The baton has been passed. The American people executed that smooth and successful baton change placing the last runner of the USA team in the 4x100 relay in the Olympics of the Superpowers in a real position to go for gold.
America, your President-elect has told us all who runs the last leg. It is each and every one of us.
Let's get to work.
