Congratulations Obama

Yes - Congratulations to the Democrats and America for a record breaking turn-out and the first African-American President!

However, as Pharyngula has said, America still faces it's wealth of problems.

After 8 years of Bush - how could it not? There's still two wars for Obama to sort out, for a start.

Obama is by no means a radical Christian, but he's still religious, as is most of the American Political system, much to the detriment of the country, if you ask me.

While the African-American community is celebrating, (as is Kenya, amusingly) there's also going to be a great many racists out there, with guns no less, who are less than happy about his election.

(I'm getting flash-backs to the double episode end of season one, beginning of season two West Wing here - anyone else?)

There are other things, but the one that gets to me the most, is that Prop8 got through in California.

Way to alienate a substantial percentage of the Californian population!

Well. At least Palin isn't the VP, eh?

Prop 8 is shameful and I hope it is overturned soon - it is a black mark on the hope that Obama has brought along with him.

WW- Hey! I'm the resident Wingnut! - love the handbrake turn in the stretch limo at the beginning of season 2 :)

Yes Obama is not the saviour many think he is, but he is inspirational. I hope that he can achieve some good despite the handicap he has been handed by Bush
