Obama Wins !



Today we see history being made....

First Black African American President ....

And did you know he can speak Malay ; )

Taken from wikepedia : " Throughout his early years, Obama was known at home and at school as "Barry." Obama's parents met while both were attending the University of Hawaii at Manoa, where his father was enrolled as a foreign student They separated when he was two years old and later divorced. His father received a Masters degree in Economics from Harvard University, then returned to Kenya, where he became a finance minister before dying in an automobile accident in 1982. His mother married another foreign student, Lolo Soetoro, and the family moved to Soetoro's home country of Indonesia in 1967. Obama attended local schools in Jakarta, from ages 6 to 10, where classes were taught in the Indonesian language."
