Welcome to the world President Obama!

With the results that are in right now I think it is safe to predict an Obama win.

The only thing that has to be sorted out now is how big will that win be?

My personal prediction is that it will be 369 – a landslide, one that I said would happen several months ago.

Well done to the USA – I cannot put it into words how I feel right now, tomorrow will be a new world – a new great country that has taken herself back.

I have supported Sen Obama from day one – and I would like to offer my personal congratulations to him and his camp for such a well fought fight!

  2. Kate says:

    he’s at 338 now… I’m thinking he’s going to do better than your prediction 🙂

  3. Will Rhodes says:

    All that blogging paid off, Pied!

    Kate – I actually think I wouldn’t mind being wrong this time LOL

    We just made history–I am so proud of this country and our resolve. This is not just a victory for America, it’s a victory for the world–we just made history, now the future beckons.

    My dear fucking cunt, white trash, miserable asshole, I’m gonna kill you friend Will,

    though it could still be that I am going to win this election I am considering to let my opponent Barack win. It was a fair competition and I showed admirable and honorable behavior.

    Thank you for all Americans who voted for me. I will take a small vacation. Maybe we’ll meet again in some years. But now I will fuck’n kill that bitch Sarah Palin will step aside for a moment.

    I hate you all, you fucking cunts! I will always HATE you! But I will be back, I promise you, you bastards!

  6. Will Rhodes says:

    John – my dear, dear friend – WE WON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thank you for having such a great wordpress site – now we can be relieved that we don’t need them any more.

    Great blogging with you my friend!

  7. Bob in Queensland says:

    Well, I’d like to formally welcome the USA back into the larger world.

  8. sideon says:

    It’s a good feeling this evening…

    SUCH a good feeling.

    It’s like being a sampler at a lube convention.

    Seriously. That good.

  9. Jade in New Jersey says:

    I’m so proud of my country right now. We are headed in a new direction with the spirit of unity guiding us. God bless America and the World.

  10. pp says:

    What a wonderful moment & I’m so proud of all you Americans who did it! Yes you can & you did!
    Loved his speech – I want to say right along with you ‘Yes we can!’

  11. Stonehead says:

    Hmm, yes, the US has elected a new president and, yes, he’s different to what’s gone before but does it actually mean anything has really changed? Or that any change is going to be in the direction people think it’s going to be?

    There were similar scenes of jubilation and similar announcements of “the country has changed” when the results came in for the British General Election in 1997. Eleven years on and Britain has certainly changed, but not in the way anyone of those celebrating in 1997—or even lamenting—expected.

    Has the US really changed in 24 hours? Or in the past few months? Or the past year as the campaigns gained momentum?

    Yes, 114,719,701 Americans voted (at the last count I read) and 52% of them voted for Obama.

    But 47% of them did not. That’s a lot of people who don’t want the Obama vision of change as it currently stands. (And if Clinton had a rough ride from the right, what can Obama expect?)

    The election result is symbolic and for many offers hope of a change, but I think it’s far too soon for people to be saying “the US is a better place now”. Just as it was too soon to reach that conclusion in the UK in 1997.

    Will, I hope your blog is still around in two or three years time to ask “did the 2008 Election really change the US and was it for the better”. That’s the debate I’m looking forward to.

    My faith in the American people is restored. We celebrated last night with fireworks! Obama won by one of the largest landslides in recent history, but rather than being cocky about it and encouraging the crowd’s victory chants, he gave an inspirational thought-provoking speech to an audience whose attention was held silently rapt with every word. He talked about working to bring together all the people of America, regardless of gender, race, religion, sexual preference, financial status, age, political party, etc. This is a president I can believe in!

    At one time, black people were considered property in this country. 140 years ago, they could not vote. Ten or twenty years ago, a person of color would not have been elected president of this country. Stonehead, you ask if this country has changed. I think that the answer to that is a resounding YES… We have grown.

    But we still have a long way to go, and it shouldn’t stop here. I believe we now have a U.S. president who has the intent and the ability to take us even further along that path of growth. The important thing is for us to set our differences aside and pull together, both as Americans and as a world community, and continue along this path to becoming better people and making the world a better place. Sure, nothing happens overnight, and one person alone (regardless of his position as a world leader) can not accomplish everything, but last night’s vote has shown that we have made great strides.

  13. steve says:

    Will, you should have voted. Given they had election signs up in Spanish, and we know how US citizens tend to not know English, that apparently you didn’t have to be a citizen to vote. So you could have voted for Obama if you were here!

  14. SSG T says:

    Well having been sickened by this entire fraudulent process that is now being called an election, I will say that it is over. Yes you are all right, Obama will change this country. Just be careful what you ask for because we are all going to get exactly that. A president that has stated the biggest block to American greatness is the US CONSTITUTION. Well let the games begin and who knows maybe he will do something worth while. Seriously doubt it but we shall see. And let’s be realistic. The US is still the same as it was yesterday. The only thing that has changed is the fact that we have elected a socialist to office. This country will not change at heart only on the surface. Just wait until the “FAIRNESS” doctine is put in place. Afterall, that whole freespeech thing is over rated, but wait isn’t that part of the constitution? That’s right we threw that out.

  15. Will Rhodes says:

    Stony –

    I hope my blog is still around then.

    I don’t expect that this will be easy for Obama – far, far from it. The US is in a hole – one dug so deep it will take years to get out – but I genuinely think that Obama is the man to do it.

    The only thing I can see that will stop him is the Senate – he doesn’t have a filibuster proof one.

    But I am not blinded by my support of him – I will blog about what he does right as well as wrong. I STILL think his healthcare policy is wrong – he should have adopted Hillary Clinton’s.

    I. too, remember 1997 – I genuinely thought Blair would have done better, I know what the UK turn out like with him at the helm.

    John Smith died, and he would have been a far better PM than Blair. Now the UK has Brown – and what will Cameron do?

  16. B0bbyG says:

    I knew you’d be pleased about this Will, and I’m happy for you.

    I haven’t been taking much interest in the election, but I think this result says a lot for the people of the USA, and I won’t deny that it makes me very hopeful for the future.

  17. Will Rhodes says:

    I celebrated long into the night, Bobby. 🙂

  18. gaetano says:

    I am so glad Obamma has won.Now he and all the blacks of the world will take the blame for this country going into a depression and the whites can put them in the back of the buss again.

By all means, leave your 2 bobs worth
