the first and last post I'll ever make about American elections. But I have to.  
I realize this would have been more appropriate two days ago, but now I can do it without any anxiety of sorts. Because yeah, I guess that while I don't talk about American politics because I don't feel like I have any sort of competence in the matter, I have competence in the matter of a certain other person ;)









These were taken on the 1st or 2nd I think. God, they're just so beautiful. And they make me happy. As this whole result really did make me happy because it's such a milestone and such an historical moment and while I'm not American, it's just so good to know I've witnessed it in my lifetime. Really. And the idiotic Italian TV that made me want to cry in frustration yesterday evening is NOT going to ruin my mood nor my restored hope that things can change, elections can go as one hopes and nothing is going to kill my renewed optimism. And also, our President of the Republic (NOT the PM, beware) has sent him such a beautiful message. Mmmh, still sick more or less but this looks like a good day.

how much do we love to have the good musicians root for the good politicians?
Oh gods that rhymes *headdesk*


The last pic was actually in our morning paper the other day!
I squeed XD


Haha I was just watching Obama's speech and he said somehting like "It's been a long time coming"... I started to hum that song. The mufifnman needs to be performing when Obama gets on the throne so to speak, and doesn't Long Time Comin' sound like an appropriate song?


*relieved sigh*
There might be hope for the world after all!

That sounded awesome!!

And LOL!!!! I love your morning paper! God, I think if I didn't like Obama enough before, when I learned that he used The Rising for opening his speeches he gained a whole lot of points with me. And yeah, there might be hope, indeed. And I love that all the people I like vote for him, or at least that I know of ;)
