This is the quickest that an election has ever been called during the time I've been of age to vote.
This election was more than electing the first non-white to the highest office in the land. This election was also about whether or not my entire generation would believe in the political system of the US. Had Obama lost I don't think anyone my age, especially black people, would have voted at all in another election in our lifetime.
Maybe, just maybe, my generation will take over and contribute finally.
