[politics] OBAMA win & newspaper front pages

On November 4th, 2008, Barack Obama was elected as the 44th president of the United States.

It was grand, historic night  – not just for us in US, but all over the World.

I wanted to grab a newspaper – with a front page image – on Nov 05 (the day after) as a souveneir of this day.  But they were sold out every where I went !  Finally, I managed to grab a ‘customer copy’ of San Jose Mercury News from  a Cafe by 8pm.  I am really thankful to the Cafe owner who just gave it to me FREE !!

Here is the front page image from Mercury News

And from San Francisco Chronicle:

It is really interesting to see the newspaper covers from US and around the world.  Here are few links:

– The definitive place is Newseum which has over 700 newspaper covers : http://www.newseum.org/todaysfrontpages/default_archive.asp?fpArchive=110508
