Today, at about 12:30 in the morning Chicago time, Obama and his family, First Lady Michelle Obama and their daughters Malia and Sasha, took the stage in Chicago, two hours after Obama’s victory in the 2012 presidential elections was announced.     

In his victory speech, he called on Americans to put aside their differences, which came out so strongly during the hard-fought electoral campaigns, and come together to solve America’s problems. He promised to get to work on the economy right away, saying that he would work with both parties, and with his challenger Mitt Romney, to solve the issues of taxes, the fiscal cliff and other problems.    

Romney delivered his concession speech before President Obama’s. "I have just called President Obama to congratulate him on his victory," Romney said, "This is a time of great challenges to America, and I pray the president will be successful in guiding our nation.”       

Though Florida, the infamous swing-state, is still too close to call, Obama currently leads Romney 303 electoral votes to 206, and has reached the 270 minimum to win the election. Obama is currently in the lead in Florida, but less than 100,000 votes ahead of Romney. Obama is also currently ahead in the popular vote, which has still to be confirmed. Obama won is numerous key states, including Ohio, the electoral bellwether, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, Iowa, Wisconsin, Nevada and Virginia.     

In his speech, Obama thanked his voters, and all those who participated in the elections, saying to them, “you have made me a better president”. Now the voters have to wait and see what will happen in these next four years, hoping that these words of the President are true:     

“Tonight, in this election, you, the American people, reminded us that though our road has been hard, our journey has been long, we have picked ourselves up, we have fought our way back and we know in our heart, for the United States of America, the best is yet to come.”
