Twas good news indeed. Now if only we can find an Obama figure to replace either Cameron or Clegg and we'll be laughing too.

Indeed. As overjoyed I am at America's choice for president, it just highlights how uninspiring our politicians are over here.

If there was a British election today, I really wouldn't want any of the candidates to win (although I'd inevitably vote Lib Dem anyway). We really need an Obama-like figure to stir things up and rise above the pettyness and corruption that dominates British politics.

Wasn't that what Blair was supposed to be? Funny how that sort of thing can turn out.

As for the yanks, I'm glad they've elected someone less likely to drag us into another oil hunting expedition, though I dare say I suspect he'll be a bit of a bullet magnet for a while. I hope he stays away from Dallas and plazas altogether.

Well, the way I look at it, either of these choices for President have a pretty good chance of dieing in office. Obama, heaven forbid, from an assassins bullet, or bomb, or McCain, from plain old age. So, I think to a certain degree, it came down to who they chose as VP's. In the event of a tragedy, I'm sure that Bidden is a lot more qualified to helm this country than Palin would have been.

I think the only thing you'll find me agreeing on is that it's good to finally end all the campaigning and political ads.

And that's all I'm going to say on the subject, because I don't like being dog-piled on.

i can't help myself...

1) is your fear due to previous dog-piles?

2) had those dog-piles involved hard-ons?

3) has those previous said dog-piles involve
a. your erection facing up? [resulting in bent shaft syndrome?]
b. your rection facing down? [resulting in either admantine erections as the sheer pressure of the hard dirt resisting the sudden downward thrust trasmorgaphied your erection or creating a huge hole with sesmic damage from the sudden displacement of dirt that your erection forced dirt aside?]

well?

*howls in giggles* don't feel bad. i hate being on the bottom, too, normally LOL

I'm done with you. The increasing crap and verbal filth that spews forth from your insipid posts tells me that you're on the same mental level as a challenged middle-school student.

P.W. : Stop trolling. Really. It hasn't ever been interesting, but it is irritating.

That worries me too, especially since the people who didn't want him in office are also the people with all the guns. Still, the secret service, or whoever's job it is, managed to stop Bush from getting shot and he's one of the most unpopular presidents for a long time, so Obama ought to be fairly safe.

Popular leaders are always the most likely to get knocked off, not by lone nutters but by powerful people who stand to loose out from whatever they're doing to make themselves so popular. Of course a lone nutter is often blamed.
As for unpopular leaders, they're easier to protect because they know better than to expose themselves to oppertunists.

Johnny, you need to clarify: it's the wackjobs who have the guns and who hate Obama. The wackjobs loved Bush, and the normal people hated him. Unfortunately, normal people wouldn't even think of offing Bush whereas the wackjobs would to Obama.

Good point, Obama will no doubt hold a lot more public speeches and with bigger crowds than Bush did, because people will actually want to see them.
