Even though nothing, really, has changed, everyone seems to have decided to call the democratic primary in the US for Barack Obama. Which is pretty exciting, really. The BBC was commenting this morning how excited the Kenyans were, and I bet Indonesia is also pleased that someone with a personal connection to their respective countries is a candidate for the highest office in the US. After the debacle that the Bush presidency has been for our foreign policy, having someone with a bit of goodwill won't hurt at all.
I'll drink to that news! (and in fact, I probably will at some point)
