Even though Barack Obama won the election, he’s not President yet. He has to wait until January 19, 2009 for his inauguration into the White House. Right now Barack Obama is not our President, he’s our President Elect. Also, when I was watching his victory speech, they’re going to take a puppy with them into the White House!
Sasha and Malia…
… I love you both more than you can imagine. And you have earned the new puppy that’s coming with us…
… to the new White House.
-Barack Obama, November 4th, 2008

I will change the header and take down the election status from this site (Even though I kind of still want the election to be going, but yes I am sick of all the Political Commercials) But I’m going to leave up the “I support Barack Obama” widgets on the sidebar, because now they’re just expressing my opinion about John McCain and Barack Obama, they’re not trying to convince anyone to vote for Barack.
