Celebrate Barack Obama: A president-elect of color

Whatever happens from here on, tonight let's celebrate President-elect Barak Obama. NBC has called Obama President-elect. I don't think I ever imagined that I would live to see the U.S. choose a person of color as President.

I hope Martin and all the people who crossed the Edmond Pettis bridge on that fateful day in 1965 - who didn't live to see this night - are smiling down on us. This is a tribute to all those who ever registered anyone of color to vote.

Nothing gave me greater pleasure than to cast a vote for President-elect Obama today.

It will make a profound difference in the way this country thinks, I hope. All children will know any child can grow up to be president, or anything else. I'm still teary.
