US Election

It's an amazing time to be in the USA, watching events unfold live as election results were announced and at just after 8pm, much earlier than expected, McCain conceded defeat to Barack Obama. It feels a bit like May 1997 did in the UK (but with less D:Ream, and more Bob the Builder..."Yes We Can") - real hope here for the US, but probably even more hope from the rest of the world that things will improve after 8 disastrous years.

Watching Obama speak Nicola and I agreed that he looks younger than his 47 years. Nicola commented "If I look like that when I'm 47 I'll be pleased" - now I do like Obama, but I'm not sure I entirely agree with that.
