Good luck to Obama!
And although I´m very happy that Obama is the president elect, I am definitely adopting the wait-and-see attitude. He is so the right guy from a morale perspective, but I have to admit I don´t know all that much about his policies…
I can´t help thinking about one of my favourite Beyond the Fringe skits.
Jonathan Miller: The Americans have inherited our two-party system.
Dudley Moore: How does that work?
Jonathan: Well, they have the Republican Party, which is the equivalent of our Conservative Party, and then they have the Democratic Party, which is the equivalent of our Conservative Party.
Peter Cook: Then there is the liberal element…
Dudley: Are the liberals Democrats or Republicans?
Alan Bennett: Yes… as is convenient for them.
