obama, president

"It really wasn't a dream!"

That's what Juannie said to me when we woke up on Wednesday morning.

I've been happy and hopeful the last three days. Yes, the economy is still making me very nervous, I still have the same bills and boring job. But it is reassuring to know that 52% of Americans wanted a President with these qualities defined by Colin Powell: "a steadiness, an intellectual curiosity, a depth of knowledge." It is immensely heartening to me that on January 20, 2009, Barack Obama will become the 44th President of the United States.

And it makes me proud that the most of the globe is just as excited as I am about our President-Elect.

World's Front Pages React to Obama's Victory.
