Ann Nixon Cooper to Obama's win in 2008 US Election: After a while we will all be one

Ann Nixon Cooper, the oldest voter who voted Barack Obama in the historic 2008 US Presidential Election feels relieved that election of Obama in the presidential race symbolises the change she has been waiting for. 

As reported in CNN news, Ann Nixon Cooper was born past the generation of the slavery. Those were the days that Cooper cannot vote because of two striking reasons - being a woman, and being black.

But now, she witnessed in her lifetime that the first African-American President is elected in the most powerful positions in the world. The 106-year-old Cooper patiently awaits President Obama's acceptance speech as someone tipped her that she will be mention in Obama's speech and that moment happened.

In Obama's speech about Cooper's witnessing the history of her times, and our times, he mentioned that "Tonight, I think about all that she's seen throughout he century in America - the heartache and the hope; the struggle and the progress; the times we were told that we can't, and the people who pressed on with that American creed: Yes we can!"
