America votes 2008: election update 6

The big picture: what we have seen so far

  • The GOP has lost its reign over America's suburbs.

  • The youth vote had quite an effect on this election, with wide support of Obama.

  • Everyone seems to have forgotten about the war in Iraq. Newsflash: it's still going on.

  • We'll still have to wait and see about the Democratic balance in the Senate.

  • Not that everyone doesn't already know this, but Americans have now voted in the first non-white president. Obama will be sworn in as the 44th president on 20 January 2009.
