Fantastic, so pleased with the result. He deserved it. Symbolically, his win will go a long way to helping fix America's image in the rest of the world and illustrates that in America, anything really is possible. We hear it all the time but now we have witnessed it.

For me personally, watching the speeches of both candidates, I feel much more positive about the US. McCain was gracious and made a fine concession speech (despite the fools in the crowd booing) and Obama was just electrifying.

I think on the whole the rest of the world will be pleased about the result of this election after watching the current bumbling fool of a president for 8 long years.

Good. Great. It is so important to be proud of ones leader and I am very proud of Obama. As much as I like McCain as a person, I don't think I would have felt the same way about him. And, I totally agree with HKgal about Bush - bumbling fool- what a leagcy he has left for his family - the MOST unpopular (and hated) President in history!!!!!!!!

I'm curious - for those who believe the US is going to hell in a handbasket due to the results of this election, what would an Obama presidency need to achieve to make you believe otherwise?

Or is there nothing that he could do to ever make you support him?

I find it astonishing that people could believe this is a bad thing for the US. There are many things which are terribly wrong in the US right now as vette-dude points out. The US couldn't continue on its current path and required a new approach. From today onward the country has the opportunity to slowly but surely begin heading back up.

True. Things won't change overnight, particularly with the economic crisis afoot. It will take a long time - probably longer than one presidential term. But there is hope.
