Arvind here, bleary eyed after having stayed up all night following the USA presidential election online.
What excitement as President Elect Obama moved to that magical 270 votes mark!
Our world will surely never be the same again and I can smell a great sense of optimism in the air.
Obama’s victory has been acclaimed all around the world – in fact if people around the world had been voting yesterday he would have won by a massive landslide. There is this clever website which invited people worldwide to vote – check it out here.
There is a breakdown from 213 countries around the world. This also makes me wonder just how many “countries” there are in the world – I thought the number was around the 200 mark.
How did you spend election night? Do you even care?
And do you see this as a new beginning and a precursor for positive change or more of the same?!
