Brazil Elects It's 1st Woman President

Yesterday was the 2nd vote this year to elect Brazil's president, and the woman known as Dilma was elected as Brazil's first ever woman president. She is aligned with the current president's (known as "Lula") political party, and she will serve 4 years. There was a 2nd vote because in the first vote a few weeks ago between all of the presidential candidates no one had over 50% of the vote, so the top 2 were placed in a 2nd vote. Dilma won 56% of the vote.
