Obama overcomes obstacles to become first black president

(11/05/08 5:00am)

To some, President-elect Barack Obama's electoral victory Tuesday night was an inevitable conclusion to a campaign that enjoyed unlimited campaign cash, an unpopular incumbent party, a crappy economy and an opposing ticket with weeks of problems in information control. Obama was a celebrity politician that was riding a wave of liberal white guilt, said some detractors. Make no mistake; they're wrong. Obama had to fight to get to where he is now and he rarely received a free pass. Hopefully, he will show the same patience, perseverance and good judgment as the president of the United States.
