I hope Mr Obama has the ambition to be not just a good president

He'd better have it in him to be a great American president.  He doesn't have to be among the all-time greats, like Roosevelt or Lincoln, but he can't be Bill Clinton.  Not that I don't appreciate Bill Clinton's competence, because it'd obviously be a massive improvement over the current administration, but I expect more than simple competence from Obama.

As I've said, I'm 99% convinced he's capable of it.  The question that will remain unanswered until he takes office is, "Does he have the drive?"

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.
