He just walked off the podium at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois the president re-elect, and above you can watch President Obama's stirring acceptance speech in case you just missed it, or simply want to re-live it again.
The acceptance speech seems like quite the task to deliever just mere hours after being announced the President. Especially in an election this close, there is a sense of a divided country. It is important then for Obama to look to unite the country, and he communicated just that during the speech. I was especially impressed with how Obama stressed a bipartisan United States, while also expressing humble thanks and gratitude to the people, his opponents, while now, looking ahead.
“We are not as divided as our politics suggests. We are not as cynical as the pundits believe. We are not red states or blue states, we are the United States of America."
- President Barack Obama
So no matter who you voted for, let's unify and act to make this country stronger! It starts with us as citizens, and as Obama says, our roles don't stop with voting. We can affect change starting locally and by setting a shining example amongst our peers in our day-to-day experiences. We are all about togetherness and unity here at Gowhere and we are all one. Let's rise as one!

What did you think of tonight's election?
Write a comment with your thoughts on the speech, Obama, Romney, or anything!
With the election less than 2 months away, hip hop is definitely taking notice (see: Nicki Minaj on Romney and Obama's response) and that's only going to be more prevalant in these days and weeks ahead. I'm excited to see that politics is a topic in hip hop - to hear artist's perspective and start the conversation amongst the listeners.
That didn't take long. Taking to her twitter account, Nicki Minaj set the story straight of her Romney line after President Obama had commented on it after he was asked of the situation in an earlier interview this morning. Nicki stated her appreciation for his understanding of her humorous and sarcastic side. She also sent her *love and support* to the President. Do you believe Nicki and her "Make Up" tweet?
Ha! Thank you for understanding my creative humor & sarcasm Mr. President, the smart ones always do... *sends love & support* @barackobama
On her verse on Lil Wayne's "Mercy" track, Nicki Minaj took many people by surprise with her Mitt Romney endorsement. Well luckily, we have a "hip" President who called into Power 95.3 and took a quick minute to discuss the matter when the question was brought up. President Obama speaks that it was probably just her "playing a different character" as she likes to do so often and I really hope he's right. Take a listen to what Mr. President had to say in its entirety above!
