I'll join in with what has been said over and over and over again today, yes it was a historic result. Barack Obama has been elected as the next US President. He's the first black president of the US. He's done it by campaigning tirelessly for 21 months.

After 8 years of tomfoolery by that eejit GWB, it should be quite easy to go and say "I'm not like him" and charge as a president. Easier said than done obviously, but apparently that was the mood not just in the US but all over the world.

McCain was supposed to give Obama a big challenge, bigger than Hillary, but by choosing Tina Fey, er, Sarah Palin as his running mate. Most people just gave her the appendix -ILF to whatever word was used to describe her.

Anyway, to see how the world views Obama and McCain, here's an interesting bit from the Economist. And being in another country in Europe, I can tell that is exactly how the feeling is.

So congrats for Barry Soetoro, aka, Barack Obama. Hopefully he will live up to his speech this morning and hopefully he will let people like me enter easily to the US for a holiday...
