[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:
If you have missed out on these editions, you can order a copy here:
