President of the World?

A couple of friends were wondering whether there was anything special about the victory of Obama, beyond the colour of his skin. Of course, when America votes, the world waits.

And I've found just the piece to elaborate that thought:

I agree with you and this was a great article. In the UK we have a fantastic capacity to build personalities up that no policy can possibly sustain. We just have to live in hope.

That's reality check for sure. Unfortunately most people are currently in an Obama frenzy and will not heed the voice of reason so let's only hope he'll let us down 'gently' as the article suggests he do.
Thanks for the link.

I think it is human nature to get carried away, every once in a while. And I think we must thank Bush Jr. for the frenzy that we're experiencing right now! However, of course, as you say, a reality check is needed too!
