    Chaps this was the swearing in of an African American president! The significance is truly massive, colossal....

    This was surely one of THE defining moments in history. Now we can argue about that but I think time will show that I am correct to say this.

    I agree with on most of your point but one lil issue. While some countries choose their leader in a democratic way, we citizens of the US practice a REPUBLIC form of government. It also makes me cringe every time I hear some talking headed bimbo refer to the US as a democracy. Its is a Constitutional Republic. Our Founding Fathers detested the thought of creating the US as a democracy.

    I think he's going to be a great president, but not because he's black but because he's the prez with the best Intelligence:Charisma ratio in a while!

    I'm sorry hallryu, I was about to make a post agreeing with you, but your avatar seriously makes me laugh every single time I see it.\

    Its wrong in ways yet to be described by human beings.

    lol.

    I don't think anyone really thinks his ethnicity will make him any different to what a good president should be. Its the historic context where america banded together to support someone who could deliver something different to the status quo. Also, the idea that an african american could be president would have been unthinkable a few decades ago.

    I thought his speech was great. Very coherent and moving. Whether you support him or not, it's definately gonna be an interesting presidency to say the least...

    I watched most of it, not too bad. I hope he is able to do what he says he wants to do. That is the whole downfall of being president, if your really able to do what you said you wanted to. I am looking forward to see what he will do. I am glad we do not have another old money fat cat in office.(no offense to bush, he is just kind of uumm a dumbass, money does not make you smart).

    We've been there and done that and believe me it isn't THAT significant beyond the first few weeks after the vote. He needs to be remembered for the things he does being the first AA President is NOT something he should be remembered for it certainly shouldn't be the only thing he is remembered for and believe me the 'significance' means nowt for the future, for the days after he has gone. Things return to the way they were shockingly quickly.

    Why are the Democrats pushing this link between Obama and Lincoln? I'm absolutely positive that Lincoln would not want to see a man of colour in the White House. The Emancipation Proclamation was merely a tactic to stop the European powers such as Britain and France from supporting the South.

    How is American education these days?

    this i am afraid highlights some of the poor british education and yob attitude thats rife in our nation.

    i apologise to americans to what should be a nice thread about the start of decent guy's presidency spoiled by the comments of some of my countryman.

    crap! and have told u before skunk and i'll tell u again u need to stop smoking the stuff..

    Well I don't agree with many of his policies however I support him and hope he does well as our 44th President. It will be interesting to see how the media covers his administration since a lot of it has Clinton ties.

    People are just riding the emotional wave of his "historic" election. We shall soon find out what he is really made of. Let's not get ahead of the game. A man is defined by his actions - NOT by color.
