As an American currently living Britain, elections, and the outcome imparticular, have various effects on my life.

Right now I’m feeling an overwhelming sense of optimism, hope and emotion. Almost as if I had gotten used to dark days.

Not that anything is going to change over night. President Obama (that makes me very happy) has taken on the most difficult job out there – and has a country divided to deal with.

One of my main hopes is that America splits less & begins to work together. If they can’t be peaceful within, how can they expect the rest of the world to a. be peaceful or b. respect them.
