“We’ve been warned against offering the people of this nation false hope. But in the unlikely story that is America, there has never been anything false about hope.” ~Barack Obama
America creates history!!! Yes, it happened as one day it was destined to happen.
Being a Canadian citizen I didn’t vote but being on that side of the fence, election in America had always been comical.

I remember last I was happy with American Election, when Bill Clinton had his victory. After that what ever happened we all know and it came to a point where America – a powerful nation became a topic of comedy. But now, I am happy for America and for Obama. The change is here and it is for good we all hope.

As I congratulate America and Obama, I will convey my sincere respect for McCain as what he said in tonight’s speech.
He is the man!Congratulations again!!!! Hope begins now!!!

These days even though I am busy somehow I am keeping a good track on the election debates between the Presidential Candidates and the VP Candidates.
Not that I am interested in American Politics, but as the elections are coming in Canada too and I happily casted my Vote to my candidate Mary Minna from Liberal Party, I felt like comparing between US and Canada elections and the candidates.
Nothing much I have to say about Obama and John as I felt the dashing Obama was nervous or tired during the debate time.
But with regards to the VP Candidates debate, where when I heard Sarah Palin….I literally felt it was a show- you know where you can learn by heart some of the speeches and you come and give a solo act performance and based on that people say – wow! What a performance? What a way she used the word ‘you betcha’ and all the time her ‘soccer mom’ comment – I really don’t know what Americans think about her but hey….talking as if she know what a common man needs doesn’t satisfy that she can handle the Country matter and solve things as what she did in Alaska.
I felt she had nothing to add with regards to the financial melt down and the nuclear drew!
“Don’t show off every day, or you’ll stop surprising people. There must always be some novelty left over. The person who displays a little more of it each day keeps up expectations, and no one ever discovers the limits of his talent.” ~ Baltasar Gracian
In stead I felt Senator Biden was much capable, knowledgeable about the situation and felt that he has that intelligence to find a solution.
I hope Americans don’t make mistake again in electing the right one ….
“The leadership instinct you are born with is the backbone. You develop the funny bone and the wishbone that go with it.” ~ Elaine Agather
