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!

Yep, sure was an amazing result. Now that the Dems have a hold on all three houses, lets hope they don't waste the opportunity.

PS: Don't forget to vote soon, the deadline is 6am Saturday GMT.

Did it today! was very disappointed by the lack of information about the candidates on the net, so I went for the safe options.
