The recently-elected U.S. president, Barack Obama and his wife talk to Barbara Walters about serious political issues to their life as a family.

President-elect Barack Obama sat down with Barbara Walters for a one-on-one interview and joined by his wife Michelle afterwards, on “Barbara Walters Special”. The show garnered a high rating for ABC that broadcast it, absorbing 11.7 million viewers at 10 P.M. ET/PT on Wednesday, November 26.

Walters started out with a strong question, asking Obama, “As you prepare to lead the country, what is your biggest fear?”. Obama admits that one or two things keep him up awake at nights, especially the economical state of the nation that has become weakened each day. He said that in the next 60 days he will assemble the best team to anticipate the issue so that the chart won’t go further down.

Michelle Obama then enters in the middle of the session, dishing out more on how she will take the role as the first lady and more personal issues such as their plan for Thanksgiving as well as what the family has done in preparation to move to the White House on January 20.

Live from Chicago’s Grant Park, Barack Obama gives his first speech as the 44th president of United States. Few hours after he officially won the election over Republican John McCain, Obama ascends the stage to thank all Americans who have put the trust in him to make a change in the country.

Together with his wife, Michelle and their two daughters, Malia and Sasha, Obama took center stage, applauded and cheered by the audience. He becomes the first African-American to be elected as the U.S. president. On making such history, Obama opened his speech, saying “If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where all things are possible; who still wonders if the dream of our founders is alive in our time; who still questions the power of our democracy, tonight is your answer.”

Obama goes on thanking all the people that have supported him, including his family and his campaign manager David Plouffe. Among the people spotted in the huge crowd are actor Brad Pitt, and a tearful Oprah Winfrey who had endorsed the president on her famous talk show.

He also calls out to those who do not vote for him “I may not have won your votes tonight, but I hear your voices. I need your help and I will be your president too,” he said.
