Although I’ve never visited the United States and am not particularly linked to the US emotionally or otherwise, I feel really proud and moved and deeply happy that Obama won the US presidential elections 2008. Congratulations USA – you’ve made an excellent choice, not only for you but for the rest of the world as well!

And now that NZ is only days away from their own election, I will watch my husband vote (as I’m not a resident I’m not allowed to… but I know who I’d vote for if I could!) and cross every limb that we won’t have people voting National to get change just for change’s sake…
