Looks like I got one of my birthday wishes early… Barrack Obama has won the 2008 US Elections!
Prop 8 is still up in the air, though… here’s me hoping and praying for it to be over-turned.
I haven’t said much about the US Elections – a subject which has been canvassed to death over the past two years. I have an American friend who routinely tells me US politics are none of my business, and I am hardly qualified to make a judgement because all the news I get is from the media. and I am not American. He was a Republican supporter back in the days of Bush, and me rather anti-Bush, so I guess that explains the hostility. My friend also happens to think that the Iraq war was a good decision. Well… I get my news from the same media sources as him, for one. It is not like he is buddies with Bush, for him to have an extra insight into the workings of politics denied to me.
So an opinion I shall have, even though I have no voting power or say in all this, and the elections aren’t even in my country. The unfortunate thing that my friend does not grasp is that US politics affect the rest of the world, in more ways than one.
