Canada in O-mode
It is thrilling to see how the election has captured the Canadian imagination. The papers are full of O-news every day. Here is a saying I hadn't heard before, from The Globe & Mail:
Mike Victor, a 57-year-old African American commodities trader, said, "Rosa sat so Martin could walk, Martin walked so Obama could run, Obaba ran so our children could fly."
And the G & M man in Washington, John Ibbitson, who writes well about America, had this to say:
In the best of worlds, it will take half a century to heal them completely. But the nation is now firmly headed in the right direction.
Americans have shown us yet again what a fascinating, frustrating, complicated people they are. They have chosen a young black man with little experience in high office to lead them in a time of danger and complexity.
People of good will everywhere will wish him well.
