Obama makes history...

By jackieo
...he officially made history last night by becoming the first African-American to secure the presidential nomination of a major party...

I saved this and a few other decent shots of him (taken in April) for 'special occasions'... ;-]
...this qualifies !

I like him on face value - hope he makes it all the way, but what do I know about politics Smile

Good capture, he looks confident...
