Random people on the bus congratulate me on Obama
Oh to be American in a small European village after Obama's victory!
I cannot describe to you the outpouring of love and support for America that everyone here has displayed since Obama has won. People love America again, they are once again impressed by our forward-thinking attitude and trail-blazing ways.
My boss, a rare conservative Reagan supporter of Italian and French extraction, said to me that he thinks Obama's victory displays America's ability to question itself and improve itself, which he greatly admires.
A woman on the bus saw my Obama button and smiled and gave me a thumbs up.
Fellow interns ran up to me on Wednesday to say congratulations and to express their elation.
10 people crammed into my small studio at 2am to watch election results, "what a great honor and privilege it is to watch them with an American!"
Did you see President Amedinejad of Iran congratulating Obama? Yeah, this is what I am talking about.
We are once again beloved and admired and not only that, President-elect Obama has a very large benefit of a doubt from the world. He can screw up significantly and the world would still love him.
So in short, a big yay to you all.
PS I hope to post my Paris Obama montage shortly.
