Congratulations to Barack Obama for winning this historic elections!
Given the trend in the poll in the last few days, I didn’t worry too much about the outcome. As expected, Barack Obama will become the next US president, but the road to this victory was not easy, and he will not have much time to celebrate. It is clear that the economic situation will become worse in the beginning of the next year, but, given proper actions, Obama will make the US and the world a better place.
The fact that people selected the first bi-racial president means that we are making some progress, but we still have a long way to go: bans of same-sex marriage are projected in Arizona and Florida. We’ll see how Proposition 8 will do in California. The US is not alone though: “Canada, Spain and Norway are the only countries where the legal status of same-sex marriage is exactly the same as that of opposite-sex marriage”
