I don't know many Americans, at least not in the flesh. I know a fair few though virtually, through photography blogs etc, and I know that most of them are routing for Obama. I hope they get who they believe will save America. I hope it's Obama, I believe that out of the two even though to be honest McCain seems like a decent man, I think it's important that America has a symbol of change and that has to be Obama.
A word of caution though. I get a bit of a sense of 1997. We in Britain longed for change after 19 years of Tory. As Americans you may not realise just how much us Brits longed for change and we whole heartedly believed that New Labour and Tony Blair would give us that change. Just a word to the wise.
