    World Greets Win with Cheer, Skepticism

    CANOE -- CNEWS - U.S. Election: World greets win with cheer, skepticism

    "What an inspiration. He is the first truly global U.S. President the world has ever had. He had an Asian childhood, African parentage, and has a Middle Eastern name."

    ----------------------

    What does this Win mean to you? Are you happy or skeptical?
    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.


    True love is wanting to give to another person without any thought about
    who’s getting the better of the deal.

    Love always creates, it never destroys. In this lie's man's only promise

    His name and heritage doesn't make him a president. I am extremely skeptical.

    Thanks to Bush and tax cut after tax cut, he basically inherited a bankrupt country. That is the reason I am skeptical, but at least there is a chance the whole system does not collapse (McCain / Palin would have made that a certainty).

    he is no experience, he was in the senate two years and spent those two years campaigning for president.

    I'm ecstatic.

    I have some family members that are hardcore racists and I'm enjoying them throw derogatory remarks at me. Not only that, but I have a family full of Republicans. The debates are flying high and Thanksgiving is gonna be Yee-Haw great!

    I think Obama's inexperience will make him work harder. Not just to prove to the people he can do the job, but because he's not jaded by past experiences. He may be wet behind the ears, but sometimes that's a good thing.

    I hope he does well. It's really a toss up with any politician, but I'm hoping for the best. I wouldn't have been devastated if McCain had won, but if anything, I think Obama with his heritage will help mend World Wide views of America. Better view of America = more trading. Let's hope the economy doesn't get worse and just gets better from here.
