You don’t belong to us anymore.


Now you belong to the country, now you belong to the world, now you belong to the ages.

We can’t even call you Barack anymore.

Congratulations to you, to your family, and to you staff on your LANDSLIDE victory, Mr. President.

We stand behind you and your mandate.

Barack Hussein Obama, Jr. – The 44th President of the United States of America !!!

► Times Square

► Harlem


► The World Reacts - 16 Pix in All


I would like to extend my warmest congratulations to everyone on this site, to everyone in the netroots community, and to Governor Howard Dean, the father of our movement.

This is your victory.

Each and every one of you.

May God bless America!!!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
