Condi Rice Congratulates Obama+Celebs Gush About The Election+Pres. Obama's Next Moves

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!!"

More From The Election Night Scene

Last night's Obama Win was simply amazing and surreal. Wondering what our new First Family did on Election Day and how they could possibly keep their calm all day?  Here's the scoop: Obama retreated into a private comfort zone – an Election Day ritual game of hoops with staff and buddies. He then shared an intimate dinner of steak at his Hyde Park home with his family, including his mother-in-law, Marian Robinson, and brother-in-law Craig Robinson. Obama's daughters went to school as usual on Tuesday, then got their hair done for the big night. Their grandmother, Marian, who has taken care of the girls while their parents traveled with the campaign, laughed when she told PEOPLE: "I hope [Michelle] doesn't make them go to school tomorrow – but if she does, I'll be there to take them." As for her son-in-law's history-making win, Robinson said: "Is this exciting or what? I cannot wrap my head around it."

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...
