Congratulations to Barack Obama for having been elected president of the United States. I never thought I would see a black man become president.
I did not vote for him. I did not think that he had enough experience. I did not think that he understood politics enough.
I wanted McCain as I thought that the generation that fought Vietnam would know what to do with the country. I wanted Gore, I wanted Hillary. It was not to be.
I have the same trepidations with Obama as when George W got elected. And look where W got the US.
But, in the end, it is still a miracle that America once more has a transition of power and it is seemless.
