through Invesco Field tonight. There seemed to be more American flags
then the tens of thousands Obama supporters in the stadium. The
Democratic party’s first African-American presidential nominee came
out onto the stage to wild cheers and loud chants of “Yes We
Can!”


This
historic moment moved many to tears. “It was so emotional. When he
came out, I got all choked up. There were tears running down my face,”
said one woman.

“This election has never been
about me. It’s been about you,” said Obama. “Change doesn’t come from
Washington. Change comes TO washington.”

Over 70-thousand people
flooded the home of the Denver Broncos. “I’ve never been more proud to
be an American. The country is full of hope,” said an Obama
supporter.
