Well, history books will tell the story when the first African American President steps into the oval office. Congratulations to President-Elect Barack Obama, the United States’ 44th President. His online blog takes on a festive theme as he raises his hand in victory and salutation. One thing I noted was that the right sidebar of his blog has a special button for Hillary supporters, which I think was well placed and ushers the right spirit of country-wide unity after a very divisive electoral process.
Barack Obama is due to set foot in the oval office on November 17 for a meeting with President George Bush. Aside from being a formal meeting for photo ops and tradition, this meeting will be one to discuss the transitional procedures to take place as the new President steps in.
Boy, I tell you, I’ve just been into Barne’s and Noble last night and, man, the magazines and newspapers are all Obama’s. I think that too is a record by itself! The American media are all eyes and ears to serve the latest news about Obama. Let’s see what happens next!
