In November of 2008, Democratic nominees Barack Obama and Joe Biden defeated John McCain and Sarah Palin in the United States Presidential election. Obama gave his victory speech at Grant Park, in Chicago, in front of a crowd that held more than 125,000 guests. Obama made history as the first African American President of the USA.

Prior to their success, Obama had been a Senator for Illinois for twelve years and Biden was a Senator for the state of Delaware from 1973 until 2009. Obama and Biden were elected to a second term in November of 2012.
