    I am impressed with the US electorate for the first time in my life. The first Obama speech I have watched in full has been his victory speech. After 8 years of a barely literate buffoon you now have a President that looks like a president, sounds like a president and I can only hope that he gets the support form Senate and House to be the president the people want him to be.

    I am stunned, really I am, at the landslide victory this was. And I am happy, very happy, that the American people have the opportunity now to be a Great Nation for all the right definitions of Great.

    Tao,
    In this instance your words are my words too. :)

    I watched and saw the honest emotions on the faces and saw real hope and inspiration coming through. The sighn of a great man is one who inspires the light to once more return to the eyes of his people, and it has.

    No doubt I will. The next year, the next 4 years are very hard to predict. We can but hope they are better than the last 8 though.

    You'd have to be Barack Obama for that to happen.:)

    It's not really a black President. It's a grey President. It's America's first grey President. I wonder when America is going to have a blue and red President. It would be a really nice way of showing the country's true colours.

    52% of the vote is not a landslide.

    Estimates are that Obama got 52% of the popular vote while McCain got 46%. The remaining 2% went to various silly parties.

    Well, I feel a little better today.

    The Onion: Nation Finally Sh1tty Enough to Make Social Progress

    ...er... the forum censored my url. You'll have to uncensor it yourself in your browser to read the article. Surely we are all mature enough to do that. Just type the real swear word into the link, where the internets robocops have replaced the offending "****" with asterisks.

    He has he mettle, but does he have the experience...that has been my concern all along.

    Change is coming.

    Hey, the votes--both electoral and popular, I think--seem to indicate that America is ready. I think a lot of people are happy today, and looking forward to a new tone, and to doing work on behalf of this concept of 'change.'
