Breaking News: Obama's grandmother has passed away.

I'll update as I find info on the news sites. Right now all of them just have the headline.

I think everyone was just hoping she'd make it long enough to see her grandson win.


UPDATE: CNN & NYT now have stories up.

She died early this morning EST. As Jill at Feministe put it:

It’s a damn shame she didn’t live to see her grandson be elected president of the United States* — but I have a feeling her confidence in him was strong enough that she didn’t need to be here on election day
