For Opinions 24x7, reporting on the US Presidential Elections has been an engrossing and extremely educative experience. I learned a lot about a non-Westminster style of government, took inspiration from speeches and even understood, partly, the complexity of race in America.
US08 has been our second largest series (after SC24x7). From covering the Obama-Hillary battle during the Primaries (we supported Hillary Clinton) to the final Presidential campaign: we saw it all and loved it.
However, now that Barack Obama has gone from Senator to President-elect, the time has come for us to wrap up this series. The final post will be written on Jan. 20, 2009, the day President-elect Obama officially becomes the new President.
