obama reaction

I haven’t posted about the Obama victory, because to be honest I’m not quite sure how to put it into words. It feels in many ways, to a lot of my friends, like such a relief and release that a lot of us are quite subdued about it. I’m just really looking forward to some sanity and transparency from the government – I’m aware that a lot of people’s hopes will not be met, but it can’t get much worse, can it?

And on the historical nature of who Obama is, I think this cartoon speaks volumes, and at the risk of being over-sentimental, it gets to me every time:

I heard that there’s a cartoon in a UK newspaper, also of the White House, with a sign next to a small lake saying “Please do not walk on the water”.

    It is a strange thing indeed to try and decide just how big an event this is, but if he’s even a tenth as good as he’s promised to be then the world will be a much, MUCH better place than it’s been in the last 8 years.

    And what a good time to become an American… enjoy your ceremony bro!
