Congratulations President-Elect Obama from this European observer, you certainly managed to hoodwink a nation by the clever use of the rhetorical flourish to get what you always wanted.

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.

First and foremost, a sincere thank you to all of our overseas well wishers. This nation has roots in all other nations, strong familial ties to the whole world, and it's good to know that we have not been disowned, no matter how much bickering goes on between our leaders.

I understand the frustration many people outside the US feel with the constantly subtle shifting of American political direction, for each course change we make effects the world, like the weight of a fat man in a boat. And I understand the confusion many feel about the intent of America because of these shifts.

But democracy is like a drunk in an alley, lurching first left and then right, always brought up by the walls of our Constitution. (Sometimes in their power drunken rage our leaders even try to destroy the very bricks of this wall, but it is a strong structure, and has withstood all attempts.) We are intoxicated, even lo these many years, with the heady nectar of freedom, and like a happy drunk we constantly offer, nay, even sometimes insist, that others imbibe.

But don't be deceived by outward appearances. Unless we stumble and fall in some grand manner, not to rise again, our goal, like the drunk, is to reach the safety and warmth of of a home; a home where all men are equal, not only in the eyes of our Creator, but in the hearts of each other.

That goal is not yet attained, and perhaps it never will be. But it is that dream, that hope, of attainment that keeps us putting one foot in front of the other. There can be no doubt in the heart of any man that our goal is a worthy one. And though our strides may lack cadence, the alley we walk is always downhill, for we know that we can always be better than we have been, and that any golden age lies in the future.

A salute to you, our worldwide brothers and sisters, on this, our celebration of perpetual national change without the need for violence or oppression.

As an ATS Staff Member, I will not moderate in threads such as this where I have participated as a member.

Congratulations from Norway!

This is very good news, and the reactions from both media and the government here in my country are very positive. Even many, many of the conservatives here backed Obama, not McCain.

By the way, Bush never invited our prime minster to the White House, not that our socialist prime minister Jens Stoltenberg has ever complained about it...

Perhaps Jens vil be invited now?

”I am happy to congratulate Senator Barack Obama with his victory. It is historic that the USA will now have its first Afro-American president. The election campaign has engaged many US citizens and the outcome is of major importance to the entire world. I look forward to cooperate closely with the new US president and his administration”, says Norway’s Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg.

I am in Texas, which is like living on a different planet, being that the majority of the people are so out of touch with reality.... This is a place where people freely speak of rights and freedom, but are repulsed and terrified of anyone that doesn't conform and accept the ignorance and lies that are prevalent here..... Even if we are to prosper beyond all expectation during Barack Obama's administration, He will be looked down on by the brainwashed Neo-Cons..... I am one old white man that will derive great pleasure in laughing in their angry ignorant faces..... Thanks to all of you that also live outside of the U.S., for all of the wise input from the beginning, to the end of the process, that has led to this historical event...... May it result in a better world for us all . _javascript:icon('

Thank you to all the well wishers from the our mother countries.

This truly is an amazing time for us all.

I now fully understand why my great grandfather came from Yorkshire England in 1850 as a young man. And I am more grateful for that journey he took to a new land than I have ever been.

And I cannot forget my maternal great grandfather who made the voyage from Norway to this great land in the early 1900's.

For the son of an Immigrant from Africa to become President of the United States, nothing tells the story of our greatness more than that.

Our destinies are truly intertwined as a world. Long live the new era of Global goodwill!!!!

Birds flying high, You know how I feel.
Sun in the sky, You know how I feel.
Breeze drifting by, You know how I feel,
It's a new dawn, it's a new day, it's a new life.....
For me.
Feeling good!
Dragon fly out in the sun, You know what I mean.
Butterflies all having fun, You know what I mean.
Sleep in peace when day is done, That's what I mean.
And this old world is a new world and a bold world.....
For me.
Stars when you shine, You know how I feel.
Scent of the pine, You know how I feel.
Freedom is mine, I know how I feel.
It's a new dawn, it's a new day, it's a new life.....
For us all.....Feeling good! ..............................................

Congatulations President Obama and Family!
I sense in my soul that the world is a much safer place to live.

Yes congratulations Obama, the first Afrcan-American(mixed) to enter the Whitehouse is truly a great achievment. It was still very close if you look at the popular vote, which leaves America still a quite divided place.

Hopefully he can steady the ship economy wise, withdraw the troops from Iraq, dismantle the hundreds of bases around the world and engage with the wolrd on an even level and stop this talk of American leadership

Good to see that this thread is staying somewhat on track, their are plenty of other fear driven threads for the losers to go cry in.

We in America thank you outsiders for your congratulations.

We would likely respond in kind, but we're kinda busy greasing up and bending over for a really good rooting.

Congratulations to Obama for winning the presidency and to the US as a whole for voting for him.

My only wish from a US outsider now is that perhaps a Native American Indian will one day be President of the United States - That will be the day that will show the world that America has finally come of age.

Hey, where are the well wishes from Moamar Qadahfi, The Iranian Elf President (looks like Kucinich with a beard) and Hugo Chavez. Oh well. I suppose they will attend the inaugural ball. I understand that it is going to be pot luck style this year. All of the money has already been spent. Chavez makes a mean green bean casserole. It should be a good bash.

I would like to congratulate Obama, but especially US and its citizens for your amazing democracy. It inspires and serves as an example for the rest of the world, including my own country (Brazil).

exuberant and heartfelt congratulations to Obama and America on a decision well made; from one in New Zealand who knows similar sentiments are expressed from many of her fellow countrymen. well done.

personally; while fully expecting Barrack to win all along, i was surprised at how emotional i became when his win was announced as a definite, and for me, it did come down to race. i'm not naive enough to think racial barriers and oppression will be abolished just because America has elected a black president ... but like most, i can't deny the implications of this election which is having a huge effect not only on America and Americans', but on the whole world too. the proof of that is in the pudding - we've all been watching and our interest has never been higher. somehow and for some intangible reason, it's been important to the rest of the world that America give a definitive sign that they're moving past all the racial barriers that have crippled them in the past.

the biggest question now is - 'what now'? who knows, the downside of all this is Barrack has inherited a #e economy and state of affairs that even superman couldn't fix; so i really fear the unrealistic expectations that could harm him. i do however have faith though that, if anyone can make inroads into fixing it, it's Barrack Obama. the way his campaign was run is nothing short of brilliance. obviously his choices and judgment paid off there. maybe, hopefully ... that same type of brilliance will surround him in his presidency. wouldn't that just be the ultimate?

if not, he's already ahead of his game in what he's already achieved.

I represent the well wishers from Berlin, amongst the 95% of the rest of my country, as well as way over 70% of the rest of Europe. Yes we can!

I'm in Texas, too. I know exactly where you are coming from. For me to speak my mind is to be ridiculed and labeled with a harshess! Happens constantly, but I'm not giving into the brainwashed masses.

Back to the topic, Congrats Obama, and a big thank you globally to all of the people who can see that America as a whole is changing for the better. While it can be hard at times for me to see living in such a backwards state, I know it's happening when I get online and chat with various people nationwide.

Keep the hope everyone. Anything is possible while this man is in office!!
