On the night of Tuesday, Nov. 4, Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama secured 365 electoral votes against Republican presidential candidate John McCain's 173, meaning he will become the nation's 44th President - and first African American president - on January 20, 2009. The popular vote, however, was split pretty evenly between the two candidates, with Obama ending up slightly ahead.
The Democratic Party also assumed a majority in both the Senate and the House of Representatives.
