I am so happy that Obama won the US election on Tuesday. We had a SuperBama party at our house – very similar to a Super Bowl party – good food, good drink, and a blowout by half-time.
What got my attention was how inspiring Obama is to so many people all around the world. Looking at the tears in Chicago, the jubilation in Kenya, the celebration in Japan, I stood in awe about how much a person can inspire, how much is expected of him, and how much desperation people feel.
I wish Barack Obama well in bringing the US back to the world. He can’t do everything, but I know that he is the best person for the job. Here is just one example of the new approach to thinking. He relates food security to energy and references “Farmer in Chief”, an open letter to the president-elect from Michael Pollan. I highly recommend reading both articles.
