Barack Obama's Grandmother Dies


The woman Obama credits with raising him will never have the chance to see him inaugerated as the President of the United States.  Barack Obama’s campaign has confirmed that Madelyn Dunham passed away today.

“She was the cornerstone of our family, and a woman of extraordinary accomplishment, strength, and humility,” their statement said.

“She was the person who encouraged and allowed us to take chances. She was proud of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren and left this world with the knowledge that her impact on all of us was meaningful and enduring. Our debt to her is beyond measure.”

No matter what the outcome of this election I’m sure it will always be tainted with bittersweet memories of his personal loss at this time in his life.
