Barack Obama making history, as the first African American US president elect. From his home state of Illinois to his father's homeland in Kenya, on Main Street to Wall Street and outside the gates of the White House, elation1 and celebration, Obama's simple call for change answered, and his defeated opponent John McCain humbled2.

 

This is a historic election, and I recognize the special significance it has for African Americans and for the special pride that must be theirs tonight.

 

Tears from the last African American to seek the office, (Everybody is singing ) and the realization3 from other activists4: the world has changed. 

 

What Barack said tonight is true; this is the only place in the world where this is gonna happen, AMERICA! 

 

While it was clearly a moment of celebration for Obama's supporters, the president elect delivered a sobering message.

 

I will ask you to join in the work of remaking this nation, the only way it's been done in America for 221 years, block by block, brick by brick, calloused5 hand by calloused hand. 

 

One thing that really stood out last night in Barack Obama's speech was the tone and the call for, really the need to move forward here and to do it rather quickly in this transition, it was a rare, a rather somber6 speech. They talked about change, and they talked about everything that needs to be done. But he really set the stage here for a transition that needs to happen very quickly. He talked about Afghanistan. He talked about Iraq, the soldiers settled there. He talked about the economic crisis. 

 

And so you really got a sense that this is a team that's gonna roll up their sleeves and get to work right away. I talked to his chief of staff last night they needed done who said expected I should get some announcements about the team members on the transition, not White House positions necessarily this week but certainly in the weeks to come .You are going to hear those kinds of things coming out of this group. It is obviously a very serious tone. Not a lot of the…You saw the celebration outside it, but Barack Obama pretty much focused on what needs to be done.
