Democratic election day party
Sheryl Deluca comforts Kimberly Kirksey, who is overcome with emotion after Sen. Barack Obama is announced president at the Democratic election party at the Omaha Hilton on Tuesday, November 4, 2008. Kirksey moved from Alabama to Omaha in 2000. She said she could not describe what she was feeling at the time. "I had the Klan burning crosses in my yard when I was 12 years old," she said. "I don't even know what the words are."
