Well I personaly love haveing Obama in the white house. I think that he will od great. I am not tryin to be mean or anything, but Bush did not od anything that he said he was going to do and hilary to me would not have made a good choice. Now i am a female and yes she is too, but maybe it is not time ot have a female running anything. Obama is of color and I know that is something that some people that are use to, becasue racism is still here and it is not going anywhere. Please tell me what you think and it is yout opinion so express it. you will not hurt my feelings, but please be considered of other peoples feelings.

I feel rather optimistic about Obama´s presidency although not as much as some. I think we have to be controlled in our expectations, after all he is only human and of course he has human failings and shortcomings. The best I think he could do is stop the war in Iraq and control the economic crisis and limit the damage. I would like to see a complete change in the economic process around the world, so it´s not governed by greed but by stability and working for the common good, spreading wealth around the world not just in some fortunate countries.

Congrats to Obama, This is not an election of USA but an election of the entire world.Obama's win will bring the entire world together. Even the worst enemy of USA would want to support Obama as he now represents every citizen of the world as such no one would ever dream about doing any harm to him or to his nation. World's people now have a Representative who could relate to every person and bring about a great change. Now African-Americans will have an idol to be truly proud of. They will move on to being not just rappers and hip hop dancers but people with respect love and very cultured citizens of America, who can achieve many things to great heights. God bless Obama and may God lead his way in the righteous and just way benefiting entire human race.

I don't know what to expect from Obama, it is too early to say good and bad things about him, after all people are really fanatic, we always look for something new and fresh and hopeful for a good start, maybe that's why a lot of people are overwhelmed about this man because everybody is tired of war and crisis and everything and we look at this person as the true embodiment of success and progress. But I don't want to look at him this way first, I will wait for the day how he handle his "job". Ever since the American election started, I am not a fan of Obama, I think media and the people just so excited that they want to canonize him immediately. The world continue looking for a great figure to be the instrument of peace and so on, that's why sometimes we got so excited and judgmental as well. But as of this time, I won't expressed any comment about him, maybe 3 years from now.

I feel sorry for Obama, not because of his color, but because he inherits a country that is in an economic disaster. I hope he does well with attempts to fix things. Time will tell there I do wish he would have started out by having an extremely simple inauguration ceremony, the tax dollars spent on this thing could be better used elsewhere I'm sure

I did not vote for Obama. i really do not like his politics. That being said. As of tomorrow, he will be our President. I hope he does well. I will certainly give him a chance. Regarding George W, please keep in mind that he had democratic Congress. Not sure if you know or not, the president doesn't really have much power. Congress does. The president can veto things, but congress can pass it anyway.
