Yes, Thank God for that! First American black president is a fact now. I supported him all the way.
I don't know how much will change over US internal or external politics, at least the world got rid of that useless and much hated person across the world, with the name G.W. Bush

Thank the FSM for that. I was planning to emigrate to Mars if Geezer & Dingbat got in. Don't think I'd get Edugeek there though.

Great news. Now we can get on with getting disillusioned all over again, as we do.

I guess I'm mainly glad that Action Man's Dad & Crazy Lady didn't get in... but I think some of Obama's policies seem vaguely sound... lets hope he does a good job. I really thought the race issue might get in the way - it was amazing to see people who couldn't even pronounce his name - almost as if they didn't want to!
I'm sure there's gonna be a lot of happy people in Kenya... I suppose the Luo can't manage to elect a president they approve of in their own country, but they have a guy they like as the most powerful individual in the world - not a bad compromise...

Great, I was hoping for him to get in. I just liked him from the off.

I just hope he was elected for what he is going to change and not for his skin colour. Yes, it's about time there was a black president - but only if that man is better than the man challenging him.
I haven't been following it so I don't know what he's capable of (nor is competitor) but as I say - I hope he has been elected for the right reasons, not just to make a point.
