This is the first time I've ever been abroad for a major US election and today was an eye-opener to see just how influential and global this election has become. Throughout school Wednesday (remember the 15-17 hour time difference) every computer was tuned to a news station to watch the map colors change from gray to blue and red. Australians, Indians, Irish, Brits, Canadians....everyone was talking about the possible outcomes and the excitement of Obama's win. The outcome of this election has so many implications around the world, but I have to say, as an American living abroad, I'm proud to now have a president whom the world respects. I definitely don't envy the job he has before him.
