Glad to see I was being too cynical… 😉

😀 Just slightly! Given the last few weeks there would have been a rebellion had the Republicans stolen the election. I’ve never seen so many happy people over here…

Heh, I had breakfast at the American café “Breakfast in America” here in Paris, and I would say I’ve never seen so many tired looking people. 😉 I think everyone was up all night watching it. Still, nothing like a plate of bacon, eggs, fried potatoes, pancakes and maple syrup to sort that out!

On a serious note, I doubt very much if Obama will be very impressive in power. He’s already shown too much willingness to compromise on what should be essential points of principle. He’s just another member of the Business Party. Yes, a disaster was avoided (McCain and Palin), but we shouldn’t kid ourselves that this presidency will really be historic. Rather, we should thank our lucky stars that it wasn’t (we can only imagine what might have happened if Obama had lost).
