Condi Rice Congratulates Obama+Celebs Gush About The Election+Pres. Obama's Next Moves
Nov 05 | by Natasha
Condoleeza Rice has offered her congratulations to President-Elect Barack Obama today: She says she will do everything in her power to work with Pres. O to have a smooth transition. She also talked about the affect his win has on her as an African-American. I'm just mad she waited until the end of her term to get a new and much more fab hairstyle. Oh wells. Work it Condi... We hear Young Jeezy was riding up and down Peachtree St. in the ATL all night--in the blue Lambo with the doors up playing "My President". And every car that passed blasted it as well. Four YBF moms--Holly Robinson Peete, Garcelle Beauvais-Nilon, Lisa Nichols, and Keisha Whitaker--have dished their feelings about the election. Check it:
Holly Robinson Peete, actress, philanthropist and mom of four, said, "Tonight America grew up enough to kick the race obstacle out of our way to progress. I so wish Martin Luther King, Rosa Parks, Harriet Tubman, Barack's Grandma, my Aunt Sheila, my dad and so many others could be here to witness this transformation towards a more perfect union."
Garcelle Beauvais-Nilon, actress and mom of three, said, "I woke up this morning with an electric energy going through me. I can't explain this feeling except to say I knew something special was about to happen. I knew history would be made today."
Lisa Nichols, featured teacher of "The Secret" and mom of one, said, "Tonight I asked my thirteen year-old son, Jelani, what did Barack Obama's win mean to him and he responded, "Mom, you've always told me that I can be anything, but now I have real evidence in Barack Obama."
Keisha Whitaker, TV host, entrepreneur, mom of three and wife of Oscar winner Forest Whitaker, said: "If I could put a label on this occasion, it would be: "LIFE IS ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES!!"Source Loves it. More on Obama's next moves when you read the rest... President-Elect Obama is hitting the ground running today. He says his first orders of business are appointing a Secretary of State and Secretary of Treasury. Globally, countries all over the world are overwhelmingly praising our decision to elect Obama as President. And that's a definite plus for the future of our economy and diplomatic relations. He has already tapped IL Rep. Rahm Emanuel as his Chief of Staff and the new Prez is awaiting his response. And so Chapter 44 begins... The Randomness: 1. R.I.P. Jheryl Busby.
