Obama

It is only two days since I last wrote here and it looks much longer again. Too much work... I will have to get used to it this term...

Yesterday, at 9 a.m. Pacific Time, Barack Obama became president of the United States of America. This date was really expected and, for sure, it has been one of the most expected events of the beginning of this century. Millions of people followed the ceremony in Washington, and many more at home. Literally, all the world had an eye on Obama yesterday.

His first speech as the new president (the 44th, i think...) was impressive! It is worth listening to it again! ;)



He claims bringing transparency and good ethics to the White House, and it looks like that. In his first day, he has stopped the trials at Guantanamo Prison (place he will surely shut down), has frozen the salaries of top representatives and has started working towards freedom of communication in the media. Good!

Many hopes have been put on him, maybe too many, but whatever he can do, it will be for good!!
