Whether or not I agree with Barack Obama’s stand on the current issues, it’s hard to ignore that it was history in the making when he was elected President of United States of America, yesterday. Not only he’s an African-American, he’s also wildly popular with the young Americans. Since I’m not in my 20′s, I tend to be more conservative, which is why I was concerned about his “playing both sides” strategy on tough issues like abortion and gay marriage. But, for this you-can-have-it-both-ways world, Obama seems like a good fit. Being young himself, his appeal to the youths of America gave him the critical advantage in this election. There was a huge turnout of young voters yesterday, and it made the difference.
America’s crying for a change. I sure hope Obama lives up to his promises, for everyone’s sake.
