Tomorrow America, The Day After That…The World

Apparently those of us who thought Barack Obama’s magical healing powers were limited to saving America have underestimated him. It turns out, he is also the only hope for the entire world.

From an Israeli newspaper column...

It took almost 50 years for me to understand how my father felt on that night (when JFK was elected). I had the same experience of unabashed joy in the early morning hours of January 4th when I learned of Obama's victory in Iowa. This was not the joy one feels when one's favorite team wins a championship. Rather, it was the feeling that something very significant happened that could, potentially, affect the whole world.

… Obama is, indeed, an audaciously hopeful human being who exudes positivity and shuns cynicism...

Put yourself in the shoes of a youngster in Africa, Iraq or Indonesia: can you imagine what effect it would have to see the non-white face of Obama –of Barack Hussein Obama - as the figurehead of the United States? Do you know how vital it would be for the psychology of youngsters in the developing world to be infected by the relentless positivity that Obama exudes? Do you think Hillary Clinton's image and message would have the same effect? Or McCain's?

Not by a long shot. Only Obama can re-inspire the lost confidence in America. And every youngster inspired by Obama is one less potential recruit or Osama.

What else might the Obamassiah be able to gift to the world?

A perpetual motion machine?

The true answer to life, the Universe and everything?

The ability to split atoms with our minds?

At last an answer to the age old question, "Where's Joe"?

Tell you what Senator, hook me up with Diane Kruger and you’ve got my vote.

With the Obamassiah all things are possible!
