Allow Me to Introduce to You the Next President of the United States of America: Mr. Barack Obama!

My fellow Americans, this has been a regal week in the great United States of America! We have celebrated our freedom to vote with record turnouts at the polls and we have elected the first ever African-American to run the most powerful country in the world. Those two things are significant beyond belief and I feel it absolutely necessary to express my jubilation and optimism for the future. Voting is at the heart of democracy, and the record number of voters this year proved that we still care what goes on in this country. We have a say in how this country is run and dangit we spoke! I am atingled for Obama to be president of the country I love. He is what this world needs right now. Earth is becoming increasingly more homogenous as a community, and it is no longer enough for the United States to only focus on herself. America needs a solid, global, righteous, inspired and persuasive leader at the helm, and Obama is just that. He is regarded highly in nations dotting the globe (including the Gaza strip and Iran, where diplomatic relations with the US have not been exactly exemplary over the past thiry years). I believe firmly that world leaders will hearken to his counsel and leadership and improve their own nations as a result. Obama is an incredible orator, cheerfully charasmatic, and shockingly likable. He has what it takes to unite this diverse nation and be a leader we can all relate with and look up to. But let us not forget who got him there. We as a people quelled hundreds of years of racism by electing an African-American to lead us. That inspires hope. In Barack's own words,

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep. We may not get there in one year or even one term, but America - I have never been more hopeful than I am tonight that we will get there. I promise you - we as a people will get there.
There will be setbacks and false starts. There are many who won't agree with every decision or policy I make as President, and we know that government can't solve every problem. But I will always be honest with you about the challenges we face. I will listen to you, especially when we disagree. And above all, I will ask you join in the work of remaking this nation the only way its been done in America for two-hundred and twenty-one years - block by block, brick by brick, calloused hand by calloused hand."

I agree with him and I am extremely hopeful for the future. This, my friends, is a fantastic time to be an American. Please throw your full support behind our new President and join with him in uniting these states of America.

This post makes me feel very excited and hopeful for the future. :) I've gotta admit, I know a lot of people who were less than thrilled that Obama was elected. But I definitely think it will be a refreshing change for our country and even for the world.
