What a night!

Good morning from the UK and...phew, thank goodness for that.

For a moment yesterday I wondered if it might all dissolve in the kind of disaster of the last couple of elections.

Now I'm fearful for the next few months, the weight of expectation, the capacity of Americans to do weird things. This may be just British pessimism.

Great speeches from both candidates (far more impressive than you'd get in the UK).

But most of An educated, intelligent, globally aware US President. Well done.


  1. Wow indeed! Great expectations now.

  2. ...and an impossibly long wait for anything to happen. Although I notice the British press is already analysing Obama's decision-making...
