Hope

"Only very rarely has a person to the same extent as Obama captured the world's attention and given its people hope for a better future." (Nobel Peace Prize Committee)

Kind of makes up for not getting the Olympics!

Good news indeed!

I was listening to the commentary on the radio here in the UK last night and they were saying that they said perhaps the reason that Barack Obama won was because he wasn't George W Bush and if they could have, they would have given the prize to the US citizens because they voted to put someone with a eye on the multilateral agenda back into the White House!! Don't take this as a negative - I think Barack Obama has mobilised the world like no one has in a long time - I just liked the thought!

Have a great weekend!
