It's wonderful staying up until the late hours of the morning, watching an historic moment occur in the most powerful democracy on the globe.
The last time something this memorable happened was the sad day of 9/11, when i initially thought it was a trailer for a new movie.
It seems the species is capable of climbing out of narrow confines, of causing a surprise. Perhaps there is hope.
A somewhat generous (would have gone up a notch if he'd turned on those who'd actually booed) and good, if rather late return of form concession speech by john mccain. Whose shock and disappointment was palpable. Maybe he will play a part, of newly refreshed optimism, that people of vision can grasp the thorny prize of breaching party line constraints.
What can be said about sarah palin! Someone who is even further to the right than uk conservatives, would always be problematic when the majority of voters wanted something different to the previous years.
Oh yes, there's these little things to consider doing for the future.
- 1st manned mission to mars.
- 50% carbon emission reductions for the globe.
- Cleaner oceans.
- Getting rid of the trillions of dollars poisoned chalice left by your predecessor.
- Sending pairs of rose-tinted glasses to those republicans who'll never like you, just because of who you are.
Congratulations to president elect obama, and may his tenure be a successful and memorable one.
