A very sad piece of news, Barack Obama's beloved grandmother has died, just one day before the election.

Madelyn Payne Dunham died peacefully Sunday night after a battle with cancer, Obama said. She was 86.

"She was the cornerstone of our family, and a woman of extraordinary accomplishment, strength, and humility. She was the person who encouraged and allowed us to take chances," his statement said. "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. "

I think tomorrow will be such a bittersweet day for Barack Obama.
