The world waits for Obama...

It is hardly worth posting articles from endorsing Obama, there are too many to begin to enumerate and link too. Pick up any newspaper, browse a blog, turn on a TV, google for "Obama + country X" and all around the world and you will find a hopeful expectation that on Tuesday Americans will elect a President who has won our respect and who is not only the world's clear favourite from amongst the two candidates, but someone of principle and ability who we genuinely believe will be a great president for both America and the rest of us.

One eloquent paragraph worth quoting comes from Johann Hari, writing in the UK Independent, explains that the election of Obama would reinforce "one of the reasons why so many of us love the United States, even as we hate some of its actions. The country is capable of many crimes – but it is also open and free enough to produce the antibodies that begin to put them right. It gives us Dick Cheney, but also Noam Chomsky. It gives us Jim Crow, but also Barack Obama. Is there any better symbol of how the American Revolution can correct itself than the realisation that the first 26 Presidents of the US could have owned the 44th President as a piece of property?"
