It's always hard as a non US citizen to comment on North American politics. However, I've spent at least 2 years living in various parts of the US, and one of those years living with a black family in North Carolina. That opened my eyes to the extent racism still exists in the States, so I thought it very unlikely that Obama would get in. Much like many of the polls reported in the last few days, I really thought that people would change their vote when it actually came down to it.

I'm really really pleased I was wrong. The shot of Jesse Jackson in tears at Obama's acceptance speech had me in tears.

Now I just have to figure out who to vote for in the NZ elections. Yah for postal voting!
