Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Everyone is allowed one electoral mistake per generation.

But not two.

I hope Obama will surprise me. I hope so. Until then, I withold judgment on where he sits, in terms of economic and social justice, to the right or the left of Sarkozy. I think the left, but given the economic team he's chose, not obvious.

One thing is really exciting though, and no amount of obfuscation can take this away, that a man who is son of an African immigrant would be President of the US, I never thought I would see this. We Europeans would do well to make this possible here too, instead of continuing to stigmatise. That for me is really the veritable magic of the moment, one step for us all to equality.

The rest, we shall see...
