Obama will give US its humanity back

US is today loathed, looked at in disdain and in triumph at its hubris all in equal parts. Obama can make it universally loved again. The US W inherited from Bill "I did not have relations with that woman" Clinton was a swaggering economic dynamo, military hegemony, political alpha player and listened to by its many friends and few enemies. Today, US is floundering in economic morass, military exhaustion, bereft of leading ideas. In short, a timely moment for a fresh leader.

A US president is important not to all not just for what he/she can but how they do it. Willing to listen to weaker parties when you don't have to is ultimate show of strength. Obama will listen to what the world has to say...

Finally we can't away from it. 53 years after Rosa Parks refused to be treated as a 2nd class citizen on a bus because of her being black, Barrack Obama is asking white America these two questions today:

  1. Do you accept me as your equal in America?

  2. More important, do you accept that I am equally capable of occupying the White House and leading this great country to a more successful future?
