On November 4th, 2008, Barack Obama was elected the 44th President of the United States, winning more than 58 million votes. In anticipation of this historic event, documentarian Alexandra Pelosi traveled across 28 states to speak with conservative Americans who had lined up to cast their ballot in support of Senator John McCain and his running mate Sarah Palin.
