Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
When you mentioned this diary title in Paris, I said something that I think bears repeating.

The hopes around Obama, young, good-looking, charismatic. Promising a new kind of politics.

This reminds me of nothing so much as the young, pre-1997 Tony Blair.

New Labour's theme song was the dance single "Things Can Only Get Better" by D:Ream. That feels a lot like where Obama is pitching his campaign.

Yes, that same air of self-satisfied support for more of what went before.
