If you go by the antiquated electoral college (and we do - unfortunately), yes. But it was 52% Obama / 47% McCain in the popular vote - in other words, a lot (almost half) of the voters voted for the other guy.

Without her in the picture, it might have been a different outcome. I was leaning toward Obama when McCain announced Palin as his VP - once that happened, I was Obama's bitch.
It's a great day for us as a nation, not only here, but around the world. Yet another historic event to write in the baby book. Let's hope that it's looked on with the same enthusiasm in 20 years.
