THE SPEECH: Barack Obama's Victory Speech For The 2008 Presidential Election

Our 44th President-Elect Barack Obama gave his usual moving speech tonight. He accepted the votes to become the first ever black U.S. President in history. Check out the full video of his victory speech below:  

  The epitome of absolute YBFness.      Side notes:  While cuttin' up at an Election Watch Party tonight....I had a few thoughts.First Lady Michelle O. looked all kinds of fierce.  Vice President Biden's wife Jill isn't so bad herself.  Sasha and Malia are killing me with the cuteness.  Barack and Michelle looked simply smitten with each other and my girly self loves it all.  Michelle's mama is a fierce one too.  Oprah and Jessie Jackson were spotted in the crowd with tears running down their faces.  We spotted Andre Leon Talley too...and I'm going to need for him to back up off Michelle.  She doesn't need the tangy turban ish.  I'm moved by this election not because a black man has been voted into the White House, but because people finally get the purpose of a President--to uplift morale, be the steady and strong guiding hand in the face of chaos, unify, and be a GLOBAL face for our country--which all leads to us securing our spot as the World's powerhouse in every way.  We no longer had this, so change was necessary.  President-Elect Obama was the only candidate who represented that change.  He proved it with history making voter turn outs and an unprecedented amount of people who actually began to give a damn.  If how he ran his damn near flawless campaign is any reflection on how he'll run this country--we're in good hands.  I'm excited that the Democrats have complete control of both the House and the Senate.  And even more excited my current state of Virginia pulled through in the absolute very end--who said every vote doesn't count? Now cue the Jim Jones and let's Pop some Champagne... More videos from tonight's celebration in Chicago's Grant Park when you read the rest...

YES WE DID!! OBAMA WINS THE 2008 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION!

Every major news network has called it! Barack Obama is the new President of the United States of America! It's not a game peoples. And he KILLED it on top of that with far beyond the necessary 270 Electoral votes. Congrats to everyone who worked their asses off to get the best man in the White House.

Election Day Run Down!

Ok peoples.  The BIG DAY is almost here.  Here's a few things to remember tomorrow (Nov. 4th)--the official Voting and Election Day:
  • Lines WILL (not might...WILL) be incredibly and unusually long.  Do not get discouraged.  Bring your Ipod, drinks, snacks (Baby Zahara style), and your cell phone to check out YBF mobile.  If your boss is trippin', give them a nice warm mug of B*tch Please and carry on to the polls.  Real talk.  Most polls open at 6am.  Jay-Z and 'em probably won't be in your area to surprise you in line that day, but oh well.
  • DO NOT wear any candidate's paraphernalia to the polls--it is against the rules in several states.
  • Verify your polling place NOW.  CLICK HERE to verify.
  • DO NOT let a poll worker tell you that you are not registered or cannot vote there when you believe otherwise.  Call the Civil Rights Division of the US Dept. of Justice at (800) 253-3931.
  • Voting on your state and local officials and issues are just as important as the Presidential candidate.  Look up that info for your area NOW.
  • Shenanigans are very likely to pop off Election Tuesday.  Keep your cool and call the above number for assistance.
  • BRING YOUR ID.  Also bring your voter registration card just in case.
  • You CANNOT vote on Nov. 5th, despite what some people are saying.
  • Bring others to the polls who can't make it there on their own.
  • GET EXCITED!
A funny run down of November 5th etiquette when you read the rest...
