Obama's Grandma Dies Before Election Day

While supporters all over the U.S. rallied and volunteers canvassed blocks, Barack Obama and his sister announced today, that their 86 year old grandma has passed away. According to a campaign spokeswoman, Madelyn Dunham passed away peacefully at her home shortly before midnight Sunday night (5 a.m. ET).

I was hoping, and I'm sure that Barack and his entire family, was hoping that she would live to see her grandson make history. Obama has often praised his grandma as being an important part of his life and has said she was the one who sacrificed so he could have a better life. My heart goes out to him and his family.

Everyone, tomorrow is the day. Get out and vote.
