Congratulations America..

..on Obama's monumental victory yesterday. The win was historic, and even though I am not American it made me feel proud. We will have to wait and see how his policies and plans unfold in the near future. But as we sat in our living room with our friends listening to Obama's victory speech, I too was filled with hopes for a united world and a peaceful future. The only American in our home - Kabir- slept through the entire speech oblivious to everything around him. But I have the "audacity to hope" that this victory will mark a positive turn of events for him and his future in this country or any other place he decides to call home.

If this country were not a land of opportunity or still the last best place on earth (before 11/4/08), we would not have come here. I like your optimism but anyone can say "Change". We did not give a chance to the person who has proven himself as a brave man and was a POW for 5 years.
If someone is 72..he would have, he better have some record. Mostly good and some errors. At 47, if you have no substantial record except a cardboard sign.."Change", some rich Hollywood/TV friends and a younger face...I worry about that. Anyway..we will have a socialist country..if that is a good thing :(
