World Leaders are Happy

And if THEY’RE happy, I’m happy.

UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown called Tuesday’s poll historic and said he and Mr Obama “share many values”.

Chinese President Hu Jintao said he looked forward to strengthening dialogue. France’s Nicolas Sarkozy said the poll had raised “enormous hope”.

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said he was looking forwards “to an era of renewed partnership and a new multilateralism”.

In Kenya – the birthplace of Mr Obama’s father – President Mwai Kibaki declared a national holiday on Thursday.

Pope Benedict XVI asked for “bla bla bla”

    Is it happiness or relief? Is there difference?
    Either way, disappointments are inevitable (unless you believe Obama is god), but it has to be way better, so maybe we will not be disappointed (the last 8 years have set a low bar). Great election marred by Bachmann and prop 8.

    Chinese President Hu Jintao said he looked forward to strengthening dialogue.

    Did he also say that he thought a McCain-Palin administration would be “very interesting?” ;)

    “Here’s a candidate for the presidency of the United States, you know, the top position of government in our country, and he’s being criticized because he’s better than other people; smarter, and more eloquent, and literate.”
