Former Vice President Walter Mondale of Minnesota said Tuesday's election of Barack Obama represents a "profound historic change and shift in America."

Mondale, a U.S. senator during the civil rights era, said in an interview with WDAY Radio News that he never thought he'd live to see a black president.

Mondale said he expects Obama to emphasize the importance of change and lead a bi-partisan effort to accomplish his goals that will require "a lot of heavy lifting and courage."

He also said Obama's victory would have driven former Vice President Hubert Humphrey, another famous Minnesota political figure, to tears.
