I didn't really dare to hope before. Yeah, it looked good, but I've been disappointed before. But now... The numbers! The victory! The hope.

Because however much we in the rest of the world may resent and deny it, the American president is a major force in our lives. The decisions he makes affect us all, on some kind of level. And that is the main reason for my joy this day. There will be an intelligent person in the White House soon, and to be honest, I very much prefer a smart person close to the big button to a dumb one.

So, congratulations to all of you who had the opportunity to vote for change! Well done!

Du har sett video-snutten om irländaren O'Bama?

Fantastiskt kul!

Självklart är vi nöjda. Men jag tycker faktiskt att Biersdorf har en poäng här. http://beiersdorfbloggen.blogspot.com/2008/11/barack-obama-vinner-han.html

andreas: visst har du/beiersdorf rätt! vi är efter i den här frågan, och har dessutom mage att racka ner på andra.
