American Democracy

"What the cynics fail to understand, is that the ground has shifted beneath them — that the stale political arguments that have consumed us for so long no longer apply.

The question we ask today is not whether our government is too big or too small, but whether it works - whether it helps families find jobs at a decent wage, care they can afford, a retirement that is dignified."

again, as an european, i truly and deeply hope that Obama can put the US in tune with Europe. Working in different directions - as it had to happen with George W. - brings the entire world to a worst place.

again, I am hopefil, bit i never was gullible: it's gonna be a hard road for Obama - neo-cons and military hawks will be on his back so they can earn their money in Iraq, while people are getting killed by the millions.

again, i never quite understood how a country such as the states could elect George W Bush as a President. No ability, no charisma, just plain ignorance and vicarious strategies to be fed on naive people. He brought you war and bankrupcy. Hope america can learn its lesson.

A song made up in the car, to the tune of "my boyfriend's back":

bush is out, now obama's in the white house
hey la, hey la
Obama's here!
bush is gone, it's a new generation
hey la, hey la
Obama's here!
a president who's gonna lead our whole nation
hey la, hey la
Obama's here!

Plus a lot of other verses, but you get the idea.
What an amazing day!!!
