Seattle, 11.04.2008  |  People gather spontaneously on the streets of Seattle to celebrate the historic victory of Barack Obama.

In the historic elections last night Barack Obama defeated George Bush who sought the third term in the White House :). Maverick lost, again. I guess it’s time for retirement.

America surprised me tonight. As I said back in February, if America can elect a black man, I will see this country in an entirely different way. A much more positive one. I moved to the States in 2001, and I’ve been unfortunate enough to live under Bush ever since. But that is going to change soon. What makes me really, really happy is that I participated in the elections that will be remembered for a very long time. And it wasn’t just about getting rid of Bush a.k.a. disaster, but the fact that my vote went to the first black president of America. I don’t know if we’re going to see much change (This system is not very flexible one. It doesn’t like to change), but there is a whole lot of hope.

Congrats Barack, and goodbye Dubya!!!
