Obama, American rising

Millions of Americans and millions of people around the world are already feeling it, that the rise of Barack Obama to presidential candidate and, probably it now seems, to the presidency, is just super news for the whole wide world.

Colin Powell said it best: "transformational."

Transformational and, tough as it may be, much of that transformation for the good.

So please be pleased. This is one giant leap for a man, one giant leap for mankind.

Who better to show that we, yes we here, are all in this together?

Thank you, Americans who have supported this campaign, and thanks to those of you who will come to appreciate the goodness here.

Michelle Obama was right: I have never been so proud of my country as I am in the closing days of this campaign. And I trust that, tough as times may be, Barack Obama will rise to the challenge and make for a better world.

Our cup may not runneth over, but it feels now like it may just be half full after all.
