A New Dawn in the USA
Obama wins. Great words to wake up to.
And already the paranoia is crashing down. Canadian media outlets are publishing stuff on the theme of "Canadians may be disappointed in Obama".
True. But if we keep in mind the absurdity, incompetence, cronyism, and outright bald-faced criminal behaviour of the odious Shrub, I'm sure we'll have the patience to let Mr. Obama weave his own rope.
He has a job ahead of him: Restore the US Constitution, repair US relations with countries abroad,try to minimize the damage the economic collapse visits on the country and the world ...
From where I sit, it's like sending a man to the ruins of Pompeii, and telling him he has four years to restore it to its former glory. We wish him luck.
But last night, the United States chose hope over fear, diplomacy over threats, and (some) respect for law over contempt for it.
Ye gods, what a breath of fresh air!
