Buffy.

I missed all the coverage last night. Had to go to work this morning so went to bed, but the first thing i did when i got up was check who won.

Yay for Obama. He has alot of work ahead of him though poor guy, so best of luck to him.

I don't think that's a fair comparison, zoots.

It'll take at least a year, maybe a year and a half before we might see any favorable change. It'll be interesting to see how things settle down in the senate and congress, whether the troop withdrawal plan actually happens and what the global affects will be. Change can't happen fast enough. Just my 2.5 cents worth
I think other than what your gut tells you, the rest is a fairly realistic assessment. Obama himself has said it's not going to be easy, and that there will be bumps in the road. He certainly has made it clear that it's not going to be a cakewalk, so I think he's being pretty realistic about things, too.

It'd be a shame to dismiss the guy based solely on your gut, though.

That man's soul shines from his eyes--and it is a good soul.

It's that kind of thinking - or nonthinking, rather - that led America to elect a guy they'd like to have a beer with in '00 and '04, and we all know how well that went.

I'm glad Obama won. Now, no one can ever call America "racist" again. It burns me up, when the BBC was reporting "Can America elect a black man to presidency?" Of course we can!

Obama being elected president has not magically erased racism. It doesn't "solve" anything.

Race will continue to be a complex issue in America. Are we, as a country, racist? I don't think so. But I think there are enough Americans who are who will continue to color (har har) the world's view of us as a country.

(If that makes sense.)
